Detached country cottage in the rural Scottish Highlands, with the perfect amount of space for four family members or friends. Ideally located near golf and fishing spots for experts or amateurs.

Lying close to Inverness (12.5 miles), the capital of the Highlands, as well as the lovely market town of Dingwall (3.5 miles), this traditional farm cottage is wonderfully located for exploring the area, with walks and cycle routes from the doorstep. It boasts far-reaching views across attractive farmland towards Ben Wyvis, Dingwall and Cromarty Firth, with a peaceful and secluded feel to the property. Sleeping up to four, it’s ideal for a family farm holiday or perhaps a romantic break in the country.

Many of the cottage’s original features have been maintained, including the tongue and groove lined walls which add to the property’s charm. Throughout it has been decorated in a welcoming and cosy country-style that will make you feel instantly at home.

Step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner of this single-storey property, where a roaring wood burner welcomes you. Relax here after a day exploring this picturesque area of Scotland, putting your feet up on the comfortable sofas as you watch TV, read a book, or plan tomorrow’s exploration with your loved ones. Cook up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen and dine together around the wooden dining table which you’ll find tucked in a corner. Once you’re ready to retire for the night, drift off to sleep in one of the two light and airy bedrooms, with one double and one twin. There is also a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Despite its remote location, you will find an array of mod-cons to use at your leisure, with a TV, stereo and Wi-Fi access.

Enjoy the fresh Highlands air on the garden furniture outside – a wonderful spot in which to enjoy your morning coffee. The owners also invite you to explore the active farmland, although access is restricted during lambing season.

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

Take advantage of this wild and rugged part of Scotland, with a wealth of nature and wildlife to explore and meet. Visit RSPB Scotland's Tollie Red Kites (4.5 miles), which enjoys stunning views across Easter Ross to Ben Wyvis; here you can get a close-up view of one of the area's most iconic birds. Keen fishermen and women will be thrilled to find trout fishing at the nearby fisheries of Tarvie Lochs (11.5 miles) and Stoneyfield Lochs (17.5 miles).

Search for Nessie with a day trip to Loch Ness (25 miles) or spot the resident dolphins at the Moray Firth (8.5 miles), one of the best places in Europe to see them in the wild. Harbour seals are also a common sight, with minke whales, pilot whales and even killer whales sometimes seen further from the shore.

Four golf courses can be found within 14 miles of the property, including those at Muir of Ord (5 miles) and Strathpeffer (9.5 miles), making this a great spot for avid golfers too.

Enjoy the scenic surroundings with a trip aboard the Ness Islands Railway (13 miles), where you'll ride a 7.25-inch gauge track through the scenic Whin Park. Or you can walk the Ness Islands (12 miles), which are linked by charming old bridges and provide a quiet setting to absorb Highlands life. Here you'll pass purportedly some of the best salmon pools on the lower Ness, while the walks are suited to wheelchair and pushchair users making it great for the whole family.

This property is personally managed by Carol.

Perfect location with wonderful views. We had everything we needed...although a small carton of milk in the fridge would have been welcome after a day of travelling,to make a cuppa before we headed back out in the evening ,to find the local Tesco in Dingwall.

Beautiful location and well equipped cottage. Just didn't feel it was excellent- very good though. Needed some TLC, for example the outside of the cottage needed some pruning to make it easy getting in without getting wet from hanging bushes. The garden furniture was well broken so no opportunity to enjoy late summer sun. On a working farm with theRead more owners , we thought living in the farm house, but we didn't see anyone who said hello is all ok', this we felt lacked the personal touch. 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.
