Self-catering accommodation on the Scottish Islands
The furthest north of the Scottish islands, Shetland is between Scotland and Scandinavia, and the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and is ideal for those looking for wild and rugged landscapes and a varied natural environment – including the famous Shetland ponies. History lovers will enjoy visiting Orkney’s abundance of prehistoric sites, while thrill-seekers can dive for relics in the island’s clear waters. Discover the Inner Hebrides’ breathtaking coastal scenery or follow a whisky trail to enjoy a true taste of the islands’ history and heritage. Experience the peace and quiet of the Outer Hebrides’ unspoilt white beaches and moorland landscapes and listen to the Gaelic that’s widely spoken on the islands. Or visit the isles of Arran and Bute, each just a short boat ride away from the mainland across the Firth of Clyde, where you’ll find varied landscapes and plenty of outdoor pursuits. These are some of the best Scottish islands to visit and they are the best places to learn all about rural and remote Scottish culture.
Take a look at our Isle of Harris cottages which are set in rural and remote locations on the rugged island. We also have a collection of Isle of Lewis holiday cottages which can offer a lovely base for your adventures. Close by is the Isle of Skye where we have lots of holiday cottages covering the north of the island to the south. It’s also well worth checking out our range of Isle of Mull cottages, which all have amazing views and are set in desirable settings. For those keen on a road trip, our North Coast 500 cottages offer the chance to explore mainland Scotland’s coast and provide the ideal base for day trips to the Scottish islands.
