Badachro is a beautiful fishing village situated on Scotland's remote and rugged west coast. This sheltered bay overlooks the Dry Island and the island of Horrisdale and has an attractive little harbour and a welcoming inn serving great food and drink. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will be spoilt for choice with the number of white sandy beaches to visit and the variety of wildlife on offer here.

For outdoor pursuit enthusiasts, you can try your hand at kayaking, sailing, fishing, mountain biking, horse riding and more, all available in the local area. Or why not bag yourself one of the surrounding Munros to experience the enormity and scale of natural beauty that this awe-inspiring place has in abundance.

Red Point (5.5 miles) is a remote settlement that overlooks an unspoilt red sand beach. Spend the day here with a picnic on this stunning beach or hike one of the many walking trails that offer fantastic coastline viewpoints along the way.

Further north lies the village of Gairloch (7 miles), with a pretty fishing harbour, local shops, restaurants, golf course, Heritage Museum and leisure centre. Take a boat from the harbour to see if you can spot any of the sea life varieties often seen swimming in these waters. This particular part of the Hebridean coastline is on the 'Whale Trail' and a hotspot for sighting whales, dolphins, porpoise and seals.

A well appointed house in a quiet setting near to the village. There are other houses nearby but hardly noticed from the house.

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.
