Situated in the north east of Scotland this area is central to the Highlands, lying in and around some of the most spectacular scenery, rich in native wildlife and heritage. The Angus coastline is known to be one of Scotland's most scenic routes and links the cities of Dundee and Aberdeen. With views of the North Sea cold waters on one side and the Grampion Mountains on the other, this drive is definitely worth the journey.

Montrose (10 miles) is the most northern town in Angus and is an attractive little seaside town that sits on the edge of a nature reserve. It comprises a historic old town centre with a museum, art gallery and a beautiful wide beach that is dominated and protected by the impressive overlooking lighthouse. The town is also home to a popular farmers' market with local people selling their gifts and crafts.

A little further afield is the edge of the Cairngorm National Park (32 miles) - the perfect place to visit if you were planning a day trip. Renowned for its jaw dropping spectacular mountain landscapes, the Cairngorms are a must visit if you are staying in this area of the Highlands. With such awe-inspiring natural beauty that continues for miles around, you will not regret taking the time to visit this natural wonder that the Highlands is so famous for.

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.
