Excellent location with fantastic walks on your doorstep. Surrounded by beautiful scenery with the added bonus of wildlife spotting thrown in also. Shopping is relatively near if you need to drive for supplies, (Selkirk, Biggar, Peebles). Plenty of interest if you want to stay somewhere with character and in an area with history relating to ScotlanRead mored, Hide

Our second visit to this very comfortable and cosy cottage. Lots of space lovely walks just outside the door and a brilliant location for visiting lots of places in the Borders. The woodburner in the livingroom very efficient and cheery on a cool evening. The Leader water walk from Leaderfoot to Earlston is full of wild flowers and the Duchess DrivRead moree, a long gradual uphill walk around Bowhill has amazing views once you're up. Monteviot Gardens and Woodside Plant Cenrtre both excellent too. Hide

Absolutely fantastic place. Just what we wanted during the current pandemic period. The cottage is well located, excellently designed and well kept by the owners. We had a fabulous time. Lots of local trails to explore which we did. We would highly recommend it.

The cottage has everything we needed and is so peaceful and relaxing, we really couldn't have wanted for more. With a well equipped kitchen, cosy log fire, hills on your doorstep and lovely owners, this really is a wonderful place to be. The only thing that made our 3rd stay even better was the hundreds of cute lambs everywhere and a red squirrel!

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.
