A lovely, restored cottage set within castle grounds, with contemporary style, a cosy wood burner and views over the lake. A perfect romantic hideaway.

This cosy cottage is located in the grounds of Drummond Castle, just 3 miles from the pretty market town of Crieff where you will find a lovely selection of independent shops and restaurants. There are several distilleries in the area - why not book a tour or tasting session and enjoy a dram or two? You are ideally situated for exploring both the Trossachs and the Cairngorms from here; head out and conquer one of the 282 Munros which Scotland has to offer. For keen mountain bikers, there are lots of bike tracks in the area to discover. However, you may find you cannot tear yourself away from this perfect spot, so why not head to the stunning Castle gardens, where you have complimentary unlimited access during your stay? Described as the best example of formal terraced gardens in Scotland and Europe, these impressive grounds date back to the 17th century.

This pretty country cottage has been lovingly restored and offers the perfect escape for a couple looking for some time away from day-to-day life. As you enter the cottage you will find yourself in the hallway, leading to a spacious, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a wood burner. The dining table in the window offers views over the pond as you enjoy your breakfast or evening meal. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob and oven and integrated fridge. Along the hall you will find the shower room with a large walk-in shower, WC and bathrobes. At the end of the hallway, you will find the spacious king-size bedroom: a tranquil place to relax and unwind.

To the rear of the cottage, you will find a lovely sunny decked area which is reached by a number of low-rise steps. Its elevated position gives you a peek across the woodland and countryside. There is a charcoal BBQ and seating to make the most of summer evenings, read or make plans for the rest of your stay. There is private parking for one car to the side of the cottage.

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

What a brilliant Wee Bothy, and in these times at a very reasonable cost. It is on the lovely estate of stunning Drummond Castle, so you either need to drive to get anywhere or walk, and the roads are quiet so we often did that. Horses and swans visible from the living room. We hope to return

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.
