The area around the cottage is known as one of Scotland's most scenic areas. The River Tay is less than half a mile from the property and offers outstanding fishing. The Tay Forest Park, also less than half a mile away, is a haven for walkers and cyclists with dramatic landscapes to explore and both challenging and easy trails, making it a great family escape.

The Cairngorms National Park, where you'll find an even bigger choice of walking trails and outstanding views, is just 20 miles away. With snow-capped peaks, lochs and tree-lined valleys, it's the UK's largest outdoor park and offers almost any adventure activity you can think of.

The village of Dunkeld, 3 miles away on the banks of the River Tay, is home to the nearest pubs and shops. It has its own majestic cathedral, plenty of independent shops and is renowned for its colourful houses.

This area of Scotland is well-known for its distilleries. The nearest is Blair Athol Distillery, in the town of Pitlochry, 12 miles away. While you're there, explore the town, which is known as one of Scotland's most beautiful. It offers great views, regular food festivals, and a lively restaurant and pub scene.

Lovely cottage set in the beautiful countryside around 2 miles from Dunkeld. The property has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. There are lovely walks all around you and when you have tired yourself out then you can relax in a lovely spa bath. A small slice of heaven!

Well equipped and beautiful views.

A very nice cottage, very well maintained and pleasant. The owners were welcoming and helpful. For us it was in a good location, being near Dunkeld and the A9 but not so near that there was any traffic noise. The Hermitage very close, half an hour to Aberfeldy or Pitlochry.

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.
