Self-catering holiday cottages in the Highlands
Think of Scotland's Highlands and you’re sure to conjure images of ‘Monarch of the Glen’ country - heather-covered hillsides, glistening lochs and miles of unspoilt coastline stretching all the way to John O’Groats. Take the high road to one of our Highland cottages and sample the traditional life of Scotland's most northerly points in the Trossachs, Caithness, Sutherland, Ross and Cromarty, or enjoy an island experience on Skye, Lewis, the Outer Hebrides or on the uniquely North Atlantic Shetland and Orkney Isles.
Home to some of Scotland’s best-known landmarks and natural attractions, as well as a flourishing variety of rare wildlife, the Highlands is an ideal destination for those wanting to spend their holiday in the great outdoors. Pick a luxury cottage in the Scottish Highlands for a romantic break and walk, climb, cycle or ski your way across, up, over and down quintessentially Scottish scenery. For the super adventurous, Fort William - the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ - can be found at Lochaber with a huge variety of open-air pursuits on offer including water and snow sports. You can pick from an array of Scottish Highlands holiday cottages to relax in after all this activity!
If you prefer your breaks to be closer to the city, then try one of our Highlands holiday cottages near Aberdeen or Inverness - known as the Granite City and the Capital of the Highlands respectively. Or you might rather kick back by the Caledonian Canal. And if you're still short of things to do during your Highland holiday, then discover some of Scotland's fascinating history with a visit to the Culloden battlefield or admire the natural beauty of Loch Ness - and if you are very lucky perhaps its mythical occupant!
From Ullapool, Applecross and Gairloch to Aviemore, Speyside, the Cairngorms, the Grampians and Moray, our range of self-catering accommodation in the Highlands can offer you all sorts of stays. Cosy up in a remote cottage for two, adventure from one of our holiday lodges or live like a Laird in a Highland castle! To find out even more read our guide to the Scottish Highlands today.
