Holiday lets & places to stay in North West and North East Scotland
Relax and unplug in one of our Northern Scotland cottages and experience a wild landscape unlike anything else. Climb towering cloud-topped mountain ranges, explore mysterious inky-blue lochs, drift through centuries-old pine forests and wander along a pristine coastline - if you’re really lucky, you may just get a glimpse of the Northern Lights too. This is a hill-walker’s paradise and, from the outer reaches of the islands and fishing communities along the coastlines to the natural wilderness inland, there is much to explore. Combine this with an unrivalled mix of culture, history and architecture and a generous dose of warm hospitality and you’ll soon see why our holiday cottages in North Scotland tick every box. They all offer comfortable self-catering accommodation and amazing places to stay.
Experience an atmospheric ceilidh, witness a thrilling Highland Game or embark on a tour of the Outer Hebrides, Orkneys or the Shetland Islands with your loved ones. Hot spots of Northern Scotland include Ben Nevis, Glen Coe, the Cairngorms National Park and Loch Ness, not forgetting the vibrant atmosphere of Inverness - capital of the Highlands - with its shops, museums, art galleries and top-quality restaurants. The Moray Firth and Aberdeenshire Coast boast some incredible beaches and are a great spot for dolphin and whale watching, while Fort William, also known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, offers a wealth of adventure among its mountains and waterfalls. Less energetic but no less interesting are a sprinkling of castles, sleepy towns, cultural events and whisky trails.
Whether you are planning a trip to north east Scotland or north west Scotland, there is so much for you to see and do.
