Quirky and delightful period cottage, perfect for a romantic retreat with its wood burner for cosy nights in and a fully enclosed garden. Nestled in an idyllic rural position surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders.

Wake up to the relaxing sounds of the countryside in this charming period property in rural Scotland. The cottage sleeps two guests, plus two canine companions, making it a perfect romantic bolthole. Set off from your front door to enjoy peaceful walks through the countryside, or journey to Jedburgh (5 miles) to pick up the Borders Abbeys Way. After a day of exploring, return to your cosy cottage to relax by the warming wood burner or sip a sundowner in the garden, surrounded by open fields and local wildlife.

The traditional cottage has bright, airy rooms with high ceilings and relaxing rural views. Simple decor and neutral paintwork provide a calm atmosphere, with pretty artwork depicting the local countryside and creating a homely feel.

A flight of stone steps leads to the vestibule of this delightful cottage. Leave your coats and muddy boots here, and head into the light and bright lounge/diner. Share a romantic dinner for two by the window, watching the local wildlife, before retiring to the opposite end of the room to snuggle by the wood burner and watch a film on the Smart TV. There is a sofa bed in this room, to sleep an additional two guests if required. A sleek kitchen completes the ground floor.

Upstairs, discover a spacious king-size bedroom that’s decorated in neutral tones for a restful night’s sleep. The bedroom boasts beautiful countryside views. A bright shower room is also located on this level.

Heading outside, there’s a gorgeous garden that’s fully enclosed and laid to lawn – perfect for your four-legged friends. At the end of a busy day, pour yourself a glass of wine and take a moment to chill out in the seating area, watching the birds coming and going, along with the occasional red squirrel. The property has ample off-road parking, as well as secure storage for bikes.

With its remote landscapes, evocative ruins, romantic castles, and winding rivers, The Scottish Borders is the perfect place for a memorable getaway with your loved one.

The picturesque town of Melrose (16 miles) is a must for the itinerary. This picture-postcard town of red sandstone buildings, at the foot of the Eildon Hills, is just magical. Amble along its quaint streets, popping into the independent boutiques and tearooms, before investigating one of the two immaculate National Trust for Scotland gardens.

Melrose Abbey is another one for the list. Its magnificent 12th-century ruins of lavishly decorated masonry are full of drama and mystery – best visited on a dreich afternoon for maximum impact.

Just outside Melrose, you’ll find Abbotsford. The ancestral home of Sir Walter Scott is utterly fascinating; wander through the poet’s study and marvel at his extensive library, before taking a relaxing stroll through the colourful walled gardens and tranquil woodlands.

As you’d expect, the walking opportunities in the area are endless. The Borders Abbeys Way is a great way to experience the region’s varied landscape. The 68-mile route takes you through historic towns and villages, linking four great ruined abbeys in Kelso, Jedburgh, Dryburgh, and, of course, Melrose

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.
