In addition to the ruined Wolf of Badenoch Castle on the loch, there is lots in the area for those who have a historical interest. Including Ballindalloch Castle, one of the most excellent surviving examples of a Scottish Baronial Castle that draws in crowds from around the globe to visit this 'Pearl of the North' (22 miles away). There is also the National Trust for Scotland's Brodie Castle, a majestic pink castle with a quirky and fascinating history that would look at home in a Disney princess film (18 miles away).

The more energetic can enjoy the many picturesque walks ranging from the high peaks of the Cairngorms, the National Park is only 8 miles away. Alternatively, you can stroll along the river banks, and golfers can test their skills on the numerous first-class courses in the area. There are distilleries to visit, beaches to walk along, snow sports, water sports and horse riding to be enjoyed and beautiful countryside to be explored, but nothing compares with the sound of lapwings, the smell of warm heather and the total calm and tranquillity to be enjoyed sitting in the garden of this beautiful house. This cottage provides the perfect self-catering holiday accommodation to explore the fantastic Highlands of Scotland.

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.
