"Sykes cottages were very professional. Really pleased with all
aspects. We would definitely use this company again."
Mr Breslin, Stamford, Lincolnshire, June 2013
First time booking with Sykes, very simply done all online.

Looking for a mix of outstanding natural scenery and
never-ending attractions? A cottage in the Scottish Highlands &
Islands promises all this and more, with a generous dose of warm
hospitality thrown in for good measure.
Think incredibly wild landscapes filled with cloud-topped craggy
peaks, centuries-old pine forests and inky-blue lochs. Hotspots not
to miss include Ben Nevis, Glen Coe, the Cairngorms National Park
and Loch Ness. Soak up the bubbly atmosphere of Inverness, capital
of the Highlands and featuring some great places to eat, drink and
shop. Or head to the coast for mile upon mile of unspoilt beaches
lapped by clear blue seas - perfect spots to relax, unwind and find
a place to call your own.
For wildlife, water sports, history and whisky, not to mention
spellbinding scenery, discover the Scottish Isles. Most of our
cottages are on Skye offering a magical mix of mountains and
beaches, plus an excellent range of attractions and activities.
As you might expect wildlife flourishes in the region, with the
chance to enjoy close encounters with dolphins, whales, deer,
eagles and more. If you're the outdoorsy kind, staying in a
cottage in the Scottish Highlands & Islands puts you on the
doorstep of superb mountaineering, climbing, off-road biking and
all kinds of other outdoor pursuits. Less energetic but no less
interesting are castles, sleepy towns, cultural events and whisky
So whether you're after a holiday jam-packed with adventure
or sampling local culture and history, our cottages in the Scottish
Highlands & Islands tick every box.
