Situated in the centre of the small model conservation village of Tomich, the cottage is in a great spot for exploring the Scottish Highlands. This is a really unique area with lots of unusual architectural delights to explore including the abandoned Guisachan House, which is where the first Golden Retriever was bred. Plodda Falls (3 miles) is a must-see attraction for all ages. This spectacular waterfall provides a viewing platform where you can look down. If you don't have a head for heights then you can take in the breathtaking scenery from the bottom.

To experience a real taste of the highlands you can hire bikes from the village and cycle to the Glens of Cannich, Glen Affric or Glen Strathfarrer. Here you will find breathtaking scenery and all are within easy reach of the property. This is a perfect area for outdoor pursuits, be sure to take the right type of clothing and don't forget your camera as you'll want to record every moment. Local horse and pony riding available - trek through part of the Highlands not usually seen, stunning scenery and total isolation. Pony Trekking experience for riders of all abilities - open all year round. An indoor heated swimming pool (open March to October) based at a local holiday complex is open to the public and day tickets are available to purchase locally.

Finally, a visit to this area of Scotland wouldn't be complete without a day trip to Loch Ness (12 miles). Famous for its mythical beast, this loch boasts a vast expanse of water, perfect for boat trips. The iconic ruins of Urquhart Castle, one of Scotland’s most popular attractions is located on the shore of Loch Ness and is set against a back drop of the hills of the Great Glen.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed a week at Swallow Cottage in May. It was easy to find and we were greeted by the housekeeper who was very friendly and helpful with local information. The cottage was immaculately cleaned and well equipped (just remember to bring your own towels) with everything you might need. There is a local shop that was moRead morere than adequate for all our food/drink needs (5 minute drive). We spent most nights eating at the Tomich Hotel which does excellent homely food with friendly service in a quaint setting (also a great selection of Whisky!). We took our dog to the cottage and there was an enclosed safe garden for him, with plenty of beautiful walks nearby. Our favourite was the Plodda Falls which you can walk to from the cottage (approx 3 miles there and back) and a walk in Glen Affrich (a very short drive away). We did several day trips which were easy to get to from the cottage including Inverness, Loch Ness, Glen Livet Distillery and Cawdor Castle. We went fly fishing on the nearby rivers, permits were from Kerrow House B&B approx 3 miles away. I would not hesitate to book here again, thank you for such a wonderful holiday! Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
