This is a charming period cottage in a peaceful rural position amid beautiful tranquil countryside.

Move through to the light and bright lounge, relax on the comfortable sofas after a day out exploring the beautiful local countryside. Enjoy a great movie on the Smart TV and on those cooler evenings light up the lovely roaring wood burner. There is also a comfortable dining area in the lounge to enjoy romantic meals. Next to this is the well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. Heading up the stairs you will find the spacious king-size bedroom with ample storage space and lovely countryside views.

Quiet and scenic location. Friendly owner. Lots of sheep for company. Well equipped, a lot of the items in the kitchen were brand new and still had their labels on.

Stunning location on a small holding with beautiful surrounding walks and very friendly helpful owners nearby. Recently refurbished so a few little unforeseen niggles, but clean, comfortable and the best rental bed I've ever slept in!

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.
