Property code: CABIN

With a fantastic wrap-around balcony, this bright and spacious log cabin enjoys a tranquil, picturesque setting with breathtaking views over the River Slatach and the surrounding mountains.

Grab family, friends and your four-legged companion and escape to this fabulous corner of Scotland for a taste of log cabin living. Sitting on the bank of the River Slatach, while away hours absorbing the great outdoors on the wraparound balcony. Watching the water flow by and the fresh countryside air will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. If days are drizzly, simply head inside and curl up in the cosy living space with a good read or a board game and wait for the weather to pass before you pack up a picnic and head out to adventure.

Brimming with character and quirk, you will quickly settle into cabin life and feel at home in this wonderful waterside bolthole. Surrounded by wildlife, this tranquil setting will promise relaxation. On your return from exploring this great location, cosy up and unwind for an hour in the inviting open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its comfortable sofas before rustling up a storm in the kitchen and dining together at the table. Admire your surrounding scenery from the table and raise a glass to holidaying with loved ones before heading to bed in one of the three snug bedrooms; choose from a double, twin or single to rest tired heads. Wake feeling ready for the day ahead!

Whether you need to steal a moment of peace and quiet or you fancy a communal al fresco tipple, the large stretch of balcony which wraps around the cabin and comes with patio furniture is perfect for both quiet and lively times. Make the most of the fantastically fresh air and your superb riverside location.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Perfectly located for an active stay, from this location you can conquer majestic Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Standing a mighty 1,345 metres above sea level there are two tracks you can choose from, one for less experienced hikers and one which is slightly tougher and recommended only for experience hikers. At just 23 miles from your door, pack up the essentials and head for a hike to remember. Reach the summit and admire superb views as you tower above lochs, valleys, and spectacular scenery.

The film buffs amongst you should make the journey to the magnificent Glenfinnan Viaduct which is under a mile away and was made famous as the railway line which spirited Harry Potter and his magical friends to Hogwarts. Picture the Hogwarts Express whizzing along the tracks and take in the astonishing views for yourself.

For a morning of wildlife spotting you do not even need to leave your home. Golden eagles, black throated divers and red deer also call this spot home and you can put your feet up on the balcony and watch carefully for them to grace you with their presence.

If dipping your two in the ocean and building sandcastles is more up your street, beautiful Camusdarach Beach at Arisaig is 24 miles away but well worth a visit with a yummy picnic packed up.

Spacious and well laid out accommodation in a lovely peaceful setting. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area for a week for walkers, cyclists and kayakers. Lots of birds for birdwatching, many to be seen straight from the front door.

The Cabin is in the perfect location. 30 mins from Fort William or Mallaig (where you can get the ferry to Skye). A short walk to the Glenfinnan train station where you can take a ride on the actual Hogwarts Express. You can even walk right up to the viaduct and get a great view of the train passing.

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.
