Take a look around the medieval castle and learn about Anglo-Scottish warfare.

Continue south to reach the stunning Northumberland coastline and the picturesque Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve (23 miles) together with historic Bamburgh (29 miles) and popular Seahouses (32 miles). All offer quiet and secluded beaches where dogs are welcome all year round, as well as plenty of pubs and cafes. Spot seals and sea birds and visit the area's historic castles.

Closer to home, Eyemouth offers plenty to see and do from its golf club to its rib trips, museum and treasure trail. Visit Gunsgreen House to learn about the town's fascinating smuggling past or enjoy one of the many cafes and restaurants.

We had a lovely stay at the Hideaway. The flat is very central and so close to the beach and the views are stunning. The flat itself is very warm and cosy and also very well equipped. It was very clean too. We'd stay here again if visiting Eyemouth in the future.

This is a lovely property perched high enough to see the sea over the roofs of other houses. Its a house of character. and my, what a character! Ive seen it described as quirky, but that doesnt do justice to its large rooms, comfortable furnishings, and odd crockery. If you want to stay in to read books, do 1000 piece jigsaws or play classic vinylsRead more, it has them. But if you want to walk in beautiful scenery, go on boat trips, or just enjoy Eyemouth, youre in the right place. 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.
