Romantic getaway with private hot tub and sea and mountain views. In the summer, stunning sunsets provide a kaleidoscope of colours, and in the winter there’s a chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

Close to the shore and overlooking the bay, this luxury cottage is an idyllic retreat for a couple holidaying in the Highlands. Far from the rush of everyday life, amidst the dramatic beauty of northwest Scotland, you can bask in the tranquillity and share romantic evenings together. Stroll into Poolewe village, only half a mile down the road, for supplies.

From the charming and quirky décor in the lounge to the stylish kitchen/diner, the cottage is warm and welcoming with cosy and colourful interiors. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out towards the stunning sea views, which you can enjoy from both the lounge and bedroom.

Arrive back at the cottage after a day out and light the wood burner if there is an evening chill in the air. While the lounge warms up, prepare a romantic meal for two in the well-equipped kitchen. Set the table and enjoy a relaxed dinner together, then retire to the lounge for a soft seat. Choose a playlist for the Bluetooth speaker and curl up on the sofa with a glass of wine or dram of whisky. Watch a favourite programme on Sky TV or read a book. Head down the hall for a soothing soak in the walk-in shower, then climb the stairs to get cosy in bed.

On the first floor, snuggle down in the king-size bed for a night of undisturbed sleep. Revel in the peace and quiet, and wake to spectacular views of morning sun glistening on the water.

The lounge’s patio doors lead you straight onto the decked area. Here, there is seating for al fresco dining as well as your very own hot tub. Sit back and enjoy the sunset, toasting to an incredible stay. Outside, there is also a fruit garden where you can pick the fresh fruits of the season.

A visit to this corner of Scotland wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Inverewe Garden (1 mile). Managed by the National Trust for Scotland, wander through the rare species and colourful blooms of this extraordinary botanic garden, created in the 19th-century. There’s also a museum and gallery, and a cafe for a light bite in between exploring.

At The Perfume Studio (9.5 miles), browse the selection of locally crafted soaps and scents on offer in the shop, perfect as a thoughtful souvenir for friends and family. When you’ve made your purchases, order lunch in the cafe and then enjoy the drive back along the scenic road that follows the coast.

Nearby, the village of Gairloch (6 miles) is the starting point for a variety of outdoor activities. Book on a boat trip and set off from the bay to spot local wildlife, that includes whales, otters, seals, and porpoises, or head out with a local fisherman to return with a fresh catch. At the Gairloch Trekking Centre, you can experience riding along a sandy beach, an unforgettable way to spend an afternoon together.

Further afield, buy picnic essentials from Poolewe village shop and drive to Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve (23 miles). Find out more about the area at the visitor centre before setting off on one of the many trails.

Idyllic cottage in perfect location amidst stunning scenery - you couldn't get closer to the sea loch. Wonderfully equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need in a holiday cottage. The quality of fixtures and fittings is just outstanding and the on-site owners extremely hospitable and helpful. We will be going again.

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.
