The comfy sofa is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset over the sea while you watch the wildlife swim past. The TV has Sky Entertainment Plus so you can watch your favourite movie after a long day. The bathroom has underfloor heating, a spacious bath, separate shower and WC. Outside, and up a few steps is the shepherd’s hut with tasteful, retro style decor. Here you will find an electric hob, combi microwave oven, toaster, a small fridge and a kettle for brewing up a cuppa. There is also a table and seating to enjoy your meals, where you can enjoy the views from the windows overlooking the fast-flowing river or open the stable door for views across the bay and to the hills beyond. This is perfect place to relax and indulge your artistic talents. Whether you like to sketch, paint, draw or write the next best-selling novel, you will find plenty of inspiration inside and outside the hut.

Outside there is a small grass area with patio, seating and a table to make the most of the views, and a hot tub to relax in with perhaps a glass of bubbly. There is ample off-road parking in the grounds of Pool House.

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.
