When you book a cottage in Scotland, expect spectacular surroundings. It's a wild, untamed land of towering peaks, remote wooded glens and shimmering lochs. The coast brings another dimension still, with rocky headlands punctuated by pockets and bays of golden-sand beaches. If you're into the 'great outdoors', Scotland is paradise found with hiking, climbing, fishing, sailing, stalking, golf etc.
The Scots are extremely proud of their traditions, many of them centuries-old. Think kilts and bagpipes, caber-tossing and Haggis, Auld Lang Syne and Hogmanay, the Royal Military Tattoo and, of course, that time-honoured pastime of supping single malt! Enchanting castles, prehistoric forts, mysterious stone circles and other fascinating relics dot Scotland's ever-changing landscape, while Glasgow, Edinburgh and other cities add excitement and vibrancy with their eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, galleries, festivals and more.
So whether you fancy a week of serious Munro-bagging, teeing off on world-class fairways, wildlife watching around the islands or trying to find Nessie with the kids, our cottages in Scotland provide the perfect home-away-from-home.
