This fantastic property is surrounded by breathtaking glens, lush countryside and a striking landscape that has featured as the backdrop for many famous films.

Wonderfully bright and spacious, this dynamic home lends itself to sociable evenings spent relaxing with loved ones. Designed with a traditional Scottish longhouse in mind you are reminded of your fantastic location in this stunning corner of the country. Kick back in the heart of the home and admire views of the surrounding glen with a tipple or a book in hand. Fire up the wood burner for warmth or head outside to make the most of the fresh Scottish air on your escape from the everyday. Sleeping nine this home suits large families or groups of friends with a passion for the great outdoors. Four-legged friends are also welcome and will relish in the chance to roam the private garden come morning or night. They are also sure to find a favourite spot by the wood burner where tails and tummies can be kept toasty!

You could spend hours whiling away time in the gloriously spacious open-plan hub of the house. The vibrant lounge/kitchen/diner is beautifully styled with a sleek contemporary feel complemented by warm homely touches and a vaulted ceiling. Recline on the sofa and nestle down to watch a spot of TV or choose a book and immerse yourself in another world. The bright kitchen space is well-equipped for every occasion whether that is rustling up a picnic, whipping together a tasty treat or showcasing your culinary skills and experimenting with flavour to serve up a formal three-course meal. Raise a glass to special times at the table and savour your food before retiring to bed to rest your head. Two bedrooms are on the ground floor and a family bathroom offers you the chance to soak aching muscles. All bedrooms boast glen views so you can wake up and be whisked straight into holiday mode.

Climbing stairs to the first floor you will find the remaining bedrooms which also have glen views. Each room is decorated in fresh tones to create a tranquil space in which to unwind, doze and dream. Wake to feel revitalised and ready for the adventures which await and grab a quiet moment to yourself in the Minstrel gallery with lovely picture window and seating.

The private garden invites you to escape for a breath of fresh air whenever you fancy. Feel the breeze whip past you as you roam the lush greenery and look beyond to the stunning landscape you have yet to discover.

The house and setting provided a perfect contrast to our previous week in a harbour cottage in busy Portree. The open plan design lounger/kitchen, mezzanine and upstairs gallery make a great family space. We all enjoyed the fabulous and ever changing views and the garden, especially the dog.

A lovely house and location. Very well equipped for all self catering needs for a large group. The local general store has a limited choice of items but sells all basic needs. For a larger shop Portree is only a few miles away (although we did not find the need to shop there as we had taken a great deal of foodstuffs with us).

We all really enjoyed the house and it's location - a walk to the head of the glen in the evening sunshine was one of my favourite holiday moments, the waterfalls on the other side are stunning. The house was the perfect size and layout for our party - providing a good balance of private spaces to retreat to and communal areas with in which to eat,Read more drink, talk, laugh and enjoy the stunning views. PS. The mattresses were plenty comfortable! Hide

Beautiful house in a lovely location but just disappointed with the cleanliness, mattresses, pillows and the frying pans. The house could be doing with a deep clean especially with the pandemic circulating. The mattresses, pillows and frying pans are needing replaced.

This home has potential to be great but the owners need to make some necessary improvements. Example: All the beds downstairs have extremely cheap, very thin metal coil mattresses that you can squeeze together with one hand. I had to sleep on the couch the entire time and my wife had to sleep upstairs in one of kids room. We tried sleeping the firsRead moret night and woke up in pain. For what they charge it lacked the amenities and little touches other similarly priced places would provide. - 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.
