Set within verdant, mature gardens, this sizeable Scottish holiday home overlooks the River Deveron and is an excellent base for fishing, walking and enjoying the very best of Aberdeenshire.

Set in the village of Aberchirder, locally known as Foggieloan, this beautifully-styled period house sleeps 13 guests across eight bedrooms. It’s close to the borders of Aberdeenshire, Moray, and Banff, with the River Deveron running by the property’s garden, so there’s plenty of opportunities to fish for a good catch or to paint this enchanting landscape. The surrounding countryside and coast boast pretty beaches, fine distilleries and mighty fortresses. It’s the ideal place to catch up with friends and extended family in a relaxed family-friendly setting while exploring this magnificent corner of Alba.

Head up the long beech-tree-lined driveway where a warm ambience awaits you at this elegant home. Step inside the property to find refreshingly bright and airy, elegant interiors where tasteful traditional style blends perfectly with contemporary touches. There’s magnificent period furniture, an abundance of wall art and authentic antiques adding charm and character throughout the property. The bedrooms have fabulous garden and river views and there are many activities to enjoy in the surrounding countryside – head north to enjoy the pretty Scottish fishing villages and beaches or west for the whisky distilleries and castles of Speyside.

The cook in your party will love the traditional Aga set in a contemporary-style kitchen which has a breakfast area and is well-equipped for family feasts; there’s a separate dining room for more formal meals. Relax and watch films together in the living room where there’s an open fire and doors leading out to the garden; or curl up with a good book in the quiet drawing room where there’s a library and a warming open fire to keep toes toasty. You’ll also find a convenient cloakroom, a utility room, and a fishing rod storage room on the ground floor.

When night falls, head upstairs where you’ll find all eight bedrooms. There’s a king-size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, two double bedrooms (can be adapted to twin beds), two twin bedrooms and three single bedrooms. There are also four family bathrooms on this floor.

Outside, there’s a large private garden leading back towards the steep riverbank where there’s salmon fishing along a 1-mile beat, available for early bookings. Sit outside on sunny afternoons and enjoy the sight of red squirrels and birdlife in the garden, or enjoy a game of croquet, swingball or table tennis.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a spectacular region of Scotland where there's something to interest everyone. You're in the heart of castle country here, so history lovers should explore Aberdeenshire's popular Castle Trail, featuring 19 of the finest abodes including: early Georgian mansion Duff House (9.5 miles), 11th-century Delgatie Castle, and Fyvie Castle with its fine antiques (15 miles).

Golfer guests will be happy to find several courses nearby; tee off at Turriff (9 miles), Royal Tarlair (11 miles), and Huntly (12 miles). Afterwards, your entourage may want to refresh with a wee dram, so book a tour at one of the region's distilleries and learn everything you wanted to know about the production of fine malts: try Knockdhu distillery in Knock (6.5 miles), GlenDronach Distillery in Forgue (7.5 miles), or Strathisla Distillery in Keith (15 miles).

And don't miss the charming wee town of Portsoy on the Moray Firth (10 miles); it's small but mighty. See the old 17th-century harbour, buy marble jewellery – the local marble features in Versailles and other world palaces for its rare beauty – and join in the fun of the annual boat festival which celebrates boat building and marine crafts, music and art.

For more artisan shopping afternoons, head to Eden Watermill (13 miles), a charming old mill with a tearoom serving light bites and homemade treats, a studio workshop with seasonal events, and a shop with tweed and tartan gifts created at the mill.

This location was a quiet paradise. The beautiful house and gardens, situated amidst a rolling landscape of arable fields and green woodland, were in a perfect spot by the river, creating an atmosphere of peace and an opportunity to be still and enjoy the natural world, regardless of the weather. The excellent standard of the facilities was, in my Read moreopinion, enhanced by the fact that The House of Glennie was very much a home and clearly a place to return to whenever possible. Hide

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.
