Musical guests can play favourite renditions on the vintage piano to the warmth of an open fire, while the snug offers contemporary touches with an iPod dock, TV with FreeSat and radio to entertain guests in all weathers. You’ll find the kitchen cosy thought well-equipped with ample workspace to rustle up family meals on the Aga and electrical double oven for your hungry brood to enjoy in the dining room with French windows and garden views. If your flock are visiting in winter, they’ll love the conservatory which is flooded with sunlight in all seasons, and has a cosy wood burner to keep toes toasty on cooler days. There’s also two handy WC’s on this floor.

The upstairs bedrooms are incredibly comfortable with beautiful period features and antiques such as vintage chests, blanket boxes and period feature fireplaces, great for your night’s rest before grand family celebrations.

Challenge fellow guests to a game of croquet on the rear lawn, set in spacious woodland gardens (be mindful of wee bairns near the garden pond). On dreich days, try table tennis and darts, or borrow the property’s golf clubs for games next door. If you enjoy dining alfresco, then you’ll be thrilled to find a beautiful garden patio terrace outside with two BBQ’s, a chimenea, and a summertime marquee for memorable gatherings.

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.
