Midweek and weekend breaks in Scotland

Short breaks can be a godsend if you have a busy life. Putting events on hold so you can unwind, relax and enjoy a simple change of scenery can be a welcome restorative. Why not head to Scotland for a few days, or a weekend break? Many of our Scotland holiday cottages offer mid-week and weekend getaways, so if you are looking to fit a Scottish short break into your busy schedule, look through our collection of cottage breaks in Scotland above. You may even be able to find a last-minute deal that’s just the thing you are looking for.

Mini breaks, midweek breaks, weekend breaks and short breaks can all be enjoyed in Scotland and you can have amazing holidays with friends, partners and family.

Scotland is a wonderful country to explore, especially for those that adore spending time in the great outdoors. The range of habitats is staggering, and you would need three lifetimes to explore every part of this amazing place. Some of our Scotland short breaks are deep in the wilds which define the true meaning of holiday escape. Our collection of self-catering farmhouses, converted bothies, croft houses, fisherman’s cottages, and impressive castles all make for the perfect short break escape in Scotland. We also offer houses and apartments if you would prefer a city break in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness or one of Scotland’s other fine cities. There are so many great locations for short breaks away in Scotland, and with great flexibility, we can make your weekend or midweek two-night break in Scotland the restful experience you deserve.

So, whether you are looking for a base from which to climb some Munros, to tackle one of the long-distance trails or to enjoy a cultural break to Glasgow, Cottages and Castles have your ideal self-catering holiday accommodation for your mini-break to Scotland.
