Blending old antiques with contemporary style, this rural retreat will appeal to families seeking a tranquil base from which to experience the outdoor activities and historic towns within easy reach.

Escape to this charming semi-detached, stone holiday home, just 3 miles from the Scottish market town of Crieff. Enjoy its stylish interior and private garden, as well as access to some 90 acres of surrounding grounds, with features such as a witches’ bridge dating back to 1778 and an underground ice house. Sleeping five, it is next door to its owners’ home, ensuring they are available if needed during your stay. Enjoy the many benefits of lively Crieff and long walks through the Perthshire countryside from this delightful base.

Your inviting holiday home has been completed to a high standard and offers a fresh, welcoming interior. Relax in the calm ambience of its bright, airy spaces, enhanced by a careful balance of light shades. Look out for a variety of textures and finishing touches, such as William Morris print soft furnishings and some carefully chosen antiques, which offer interest and contrast to some of the newer pieces.

Your single-storey holiday escape is immediately homely, with its generous kitchen/diner/lounge at its heart. This is where you and your party will spend most of your time together while at home during your relaxing Scottish break. Wake up to prepare hearty breakfasts together to set yourselves up for the day. Sit up at your farmhouse table to dine, play cards and perhaps spread your maps out to plan tomorrow’s excursion. Light the wood burner on chilly evenings and unwind on your comfortable seating. All three of your tranquil bedrooms are also on the same floor, making them easy to access, and there’s a shared family bathroom.

Sit out in the sunshine in your private garden on warm days; fire up the BBQ on balmy evenings and gaze out at the rolling green views as you enjoy your meal.

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.
