This charming semi-detached cottage benefits from magnificent mountain and loch views, situated on the wild unspoiled North West Coast of Scotland, ideal for those looking for peace, quiet and tranquillity

Overlooking the beautiful Loch a Chadh-fi, the views are breathtaking and the sunset is spectacular on a clear night.

You also have the choice of eating out at the Rhiconich Hotel (3.5 miles). With endless walking opportunities on your doorstep, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Other activities are also available such as climbing, cycling and fishing (permits can be obtained from the owner).

This lodge-style cottage is accessed via some stone steps. On entering, you will appreciate how the exposed wood panelling creates a homely feel, whilst the exposed beams and stone fireplace add character. The lounge/diner is a good-size with panoramic views across the loch, whilst the wood burner is perfect for snuggling up in front of. The kitchen is modest, yet well-equipped, and has a utility area for washing muddy kit. Wall-hangings add rustic charm to the double bedroom, which is in keeping with the rural surroundings.

In particular, Oldshoremore beach (9.5 miles) is worth a visit and there's a circular walking route from here taking in the interesting coastline and hidden bays.

We had an amazing holiday, the location was really peaceful and beautiful, with lots of nature all around. The owners, next door were really friendly and helpful, but not intrusive on our privacy.

This is a very comfortable house in a beautifully remote location, with wonderful views and everything you could possibly want by way of equipment etc. Very friendly and helpful hosts (and dog!) next door. The fact that there is no internet connection and no phone signal makes for a complete break from normal busy-ness.

Idyllic place to stay if you want to get away from it all. No internet, plenty wildlife and friendly next door dog, if you don't mind her in the house leave the door open, otherwise keep door closed. Neighbours very obliging

We stayed here for my birthday and it was absolutely amazing. We stayed by the fire and cooked delicious food while staring out the window at birds and deer. We also went for nice hikes around the area and enjoyed the views from the drive into the property. Great stay, lovely people and friendly dog! Would definitely recommend to others

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.
