This charming holiday cottage with a charming decor, has the loch on its doorstep and is the perfect place for a getaway without disturbances from modern life.

For families seeking a rural retreat to escape from the modern world, this remote whitewashed cottage is the perfect haven for a digital detox. Surrounded by open countryside and set in 0.75 acres of gardens and woodlands, this holiday hideaway allows you to spend your days spotting wildlife along the banks of Loch Rannoch, walking among the deer on Rannoch Moor or hiking the rugged mountains of Glencoe. You’re not completely cut off from civilisation though, the nearest restaurant is 3 miles away and the general store is 12 miles from the cottage.

This traditional cottage sits in gorgeous surroundings in the quiet hamlet of Bridge of Gaur, at the head of Loch Rannoch. The gardens are extensive with plenty of room for younger guests to play before snuggling up in bed for a peaceful night’s sleep. All the bedrooms look out across the fields to the river so you can drift off to the sound of the burbling water.

Enter your isolated idyll into the spacious hall where polished floorboards are adorned with bright rugs creating a warm welcome. Prepare hearty family meals in the galley-style kitchen to share around the dining table, basking in the gentle warmth of the dining room wood burner. Sink into one of the cosy sofas in the living room, an inviting space to play a board game as the open fire crackles. There is no TV reception at the cottage, but a DVD player is provided so you can watch a family film together.

Head upstairs to the first floor where you will find the three generous bedrooms and family bathroom. The restful double bedroom is decorated in neutral tones with bright soft furnishings and colourful artwork. Off the hall is a further spacious twin bedroom and a pretty single bedroom.

With extensive lawns and woodland stretching to 0.75 acres, there is plenty of space for garden games and picnic lunches. Wander through the woodland in search of wildlife or stroll down to the banks of the loch to dip your toes and watch the wildfowl on the water.

This is a wild and unspoilt part of Scotland which is a haven for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. Head from your front door on a ramble across the fields and into the countryside, spotting roe deer and red squirrels along the way. Hop on your bikes for a cycle around the 22-mile circumference of tranquil Loch Rannoch or hire a boat for a peaceful day of fishing on the water. Discover the turbulent history of the area as you follow the Clan Trail around the loch, where informative boards reveal the lawless past of the clan families.

Bag a Munro with a day walking Schiehallion (14 miles) for extensive views across Rannoch Moor and across to Glencoe, or breathe in the rich scent of Scots pines and birch on a hike through Rannoch Forest (9.5 miles) in search of cascading waterfalls and hidden lochans.

For outdoor adventures all year round, the spectacular mountains of Glenshee (61 miles) offer fabulous walking and mountain biking opportunities in the summer, and ski and snowboard adventures during the winter season. Climb Carn Aosda, discover the craggy landscape of Creag a'Choire Dhirich and feel a sense of solitude on Carn a'Gheoidh with views over the Glenshee resort. In the winter the area is transformed into a ski centre to rival the Alps, with more than 2000 acres, 21 lifts and 36 runs for all abilities.

This property is personally managed by Gavin.

This is a really lovely cottage, away from the hordes. That means you have to stock up well before you arrive - a return trip to Aberfeldy or Pitlochry for shopping will take in the region of 3 hours. Remember to fuel your car fully on the way in - you can only get diesel in Kinloch Rannoch, petrol will require a lengthy round trip. However, as a rRead moreeward for the distance you will have peace and quiet, access to fantastic scenery all around - with the opportunity to take walks into the Black Wood of Rannoch (with some really stunning remnants of Caledonian pine and mixed forest), out along Loch Laidon to the centre of Rannoch moor or over to Corrour. Schiehallion is at the other end of Loch Rannoch and there are several summits within easy striking distance of the house. A track all the way through to Bridge of Orchy begins right beside the house - the railway line can be used to do one way walks or cycle rides to or from Bridge of Orchy or Corrour. The house has been refurbished to a high standard, and was spotlessly clean when we arrived - the kitchen is well equipped with the conveniences you need to prepare your meals, and given the location, you will most likely want to cook at home, although there are restaurants and other eateries at Rannoch Station and Kinloch Rannoch (5 and 11 miles). The water supply is private and from the hill, so the water you will bathe in is quite peaty - really not a problem, but you would probably not want to try washing white clothes. There was a plentiful supply of bottled water for drinking when we arrived. There is a fire place in the living room and a stove in the kitchen. Some logs are supplied when you arrive and there is a phone number you can ring to order more if needed - since the house is equipped with electric wall heaters in every room, you probably won't need logs for warmth.

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.
