Rural cottages and country houses to stay in Scotland
From the snow-capped peaks and ancient pine forests of the Highlands to the atmospheric castle ruins and deep brooding lochs of the Scottish Borders, our country cottages in Scotland are scattered amongst some of the finest scenery in the country. Whether you’re looking to switch off and unplug in a secluded off-the-grid retreat or you’d prefer an action-packed break where walking hiking, climbing, skiing, cycling and golfing are readily available, our Scottish country cottages offer the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors.
Spend the day wildlife watching in the Cairngorms National Park or enjoy some thrilling water sports in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Winter is perfect for skiing at Glencoe, Glenshee and Ben Nevis, while summer is an idyllic time to go monster hunting at Loch Ness. Watch the Northern Lights from one of our romantic cottages with a hot tub, celebrate a special occasion in one of our grand castles, or hide away in a cosy log cabin with an open fire with only the relaxing sounds of nature to wake you from your dreams. You will find the best rural retreats in Scotland within our portfolio of Scottish cottages. For some of the best, check out our guide to the top rural cottages in Scotland.
