The vibrant city of Perth (11 miles) boasts independent boutiques, welcoming pubs and award-winning restaurants to discover.

With vibrant interiors and a stylish design, your rural retreat boasts spacious accommodation for the whole family. The open-plan living space encourages socialising, a theme that is continued outside where you can indulge in a rejuvenating soak in the outdoor hot tub and share a sociable al fresco meal on the patio.

Step into the open-plan kitchen/diner/living room, a wonderful space for relaxing and socialising. Chat with friends over meal preparation in the large kitchen area where you can rustle up a hearty meal for the family to enjoy at the chunky dining table that seats all six guests comfortably. Two steps lead into the inviting seating area, with sumptuous sofas for you to curl up in and relax with a good book or glass of wine. There’s a handy shower room on this floor too.

There is also a spacious contemporary family bathroom.

Take breakfast on your private patio garden around the large garden table and make plans for your day or gather for a sociable BBQ late into the evening as the hot tub bubbles away. Ample parking is available at the cottage.

The Old Byre at Rossie Ochil is a perfect spot for exploring Scotland. The cottage is spotless as well as being well equipped, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the hot tub is amazing! For our stay, everything was clear and well organised both before and during our break. We couldn't fault anything and will definitely be back!

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.
