An Introduction to Scotland

No matter where you book a holiday cottage in Scotland, expect spectacular views all around. It's a truly untamed land, full of towering peaks, remote glens, and shimmering lochs, and the rugged Scottish coast is studded with dramatic, rocky headlands to explore. This wild and beautiful country is a renowned paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, whether you’re passionate about walking holidays, fishing, climbing, sailing, golf, or snow sports.

Scotland is a land of deep-rooted traditions. Think of the Scots, and you instantly conjure up images of kilts and bagpipes, the highland games, Auld Lang Syne, the Royal Military Tattoo and, of course, that most time-honoured of pastimes: supping a wee dram of single malt whisky. Enchanting castles, mysterious stone circles, and other fascinating relics of the past are all a part of the Scottish landscape’s eternal fabric. In contrast, the metropolises of Glasgow and Edinburgh, with their eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, galleries, and world famous festivals, merge their unique histories with a vibrant contemporary culture.

Bonnie Scotland is one of the world's most scenically sublime destinations and we’ve a wonderful collection of self-catered cottages for you to make your ideal home-away-from-home. Choose from our hundreds of individually selected and personally inspected Scottish holiday rentals. From up in the Scottish Highlands, to Central Scotland, and down into Southern Scotland and the Scottish Borders; we’ll have the perfect Scotland break for you.

Want to welcome in the New Year in true old-fashioned style? Gather together your nearest and dearest at a Scottish holiday cottage to celebrate Hogmanay. Or, why not treat the one you love to a couple’s getaway in one of our romantic cottages? Blissfully remote holiday cottages in magical mountain settings; cosy fishermen’s houses a stone's throw from the sea; elegant residences, timber lodges, quirky conversions—when it comes to our holiday rentals in Scotland, the choice is all yours.
