Find cottages in Highlands

The Highlands of Scotland epitomises all that magnificent wild and natural Britain has to offer. It’s the place to head for if you want to immerse yourself in wonderfully contrasting and every changing landscapes and tranquil locations devoid of mass tourism.

This region extends coast to coast taking in dramatic mountains, majestic lochs, heather clad moors and picturesque glens; quiet and unspoilt, nature as it was intended. It’s the perfect location for relaxing breaks, activity holidays, family holidays and romantic get-aways.

Full of historic interest at every turn, with ancient monuments and castles that tell the tale of the Highland clans, and there are plenty of great day outs, places of interest and activities to keep visitors fully occupied in this most beautiful part of the British Isles.

The Highlands region consists of distinctive sub-regions each with their own characteristics and unique charms, extending from Fort William and Lochaber in the south to the Northern Highlands.

Fort William is considered by many as the ‘outdoor capital’ of Scotland, this bustling town situated on the shores of Loch Linnhe has lots of places to eat and drink, interesting shops and is a great base for a wide selection of outdoor activities. The town is handy for trips into the dramatic and brooding Glen Coe and is the ‘road to the Isles’ which takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. The town is also right next to the world famous Ben Nevis (and its glen), Scotland’s highest mountain.

To the north is the iconic Loch Ness, some 23 miles long and 700 feet deep; in fact deep enough for a monster. Take a cruise to visit Urquhart Castle a once famous Great Glen fortress; there’s a visitor centre both here and on shore at Drumnadrochit.

‘The city of the Highlands’ Inverness is today a modern thriving city on the banks of the River Ness. It has a rich historical and cultural history with plenty of attractions including a great castle. Close by is Fort George a well preserved 18th century fortification built in the terrible aftermath of the Battle of Culloden, facing out over the Moray Firth.

To the east are the Black Isle and the Moray Firth, dotted with traditional fishing villages, hidden bays and golden sandy beaches. It’s a renowned dolphin watching area where you can see them quite close up from the shore if you’re lucky.

Further north still is the awe inspiring Northern Highlands, with plenty of castles and ancient monuments, massive lochs, atmospheric mountains and glens and magnificent coastlines that stretch for miles. This is a sparsely populated region where you can really get away from everyday life and connect with nature.

If you’re ready to begin your adventure take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in the Highlands today.

    Built almost 200 years ago to help guide ships into the Caledonian Canal, the beautiful Bona Lighthouse has been lovingly restored whilst retaining many period features coupled with the cosy comforts of modern living. Overlooking the waters of Loch Ness and set on the banks of the historic Caledonian Canal, Bona Lighthouse offers breathtaking scenery and serenity amidst the majesty of the Great Glen. The stunning oriel bay window, which once held the light that guided ships onto the Caledonian Canal in its heyday, remains the focal point of the cottage, and is now the ideal spot to while away the hours gazing on the inky blue waters of the loch in search of Nessie.

    Interior designed throughout, the cottage offers the perfect mix of modern flourishes and period features. The spacious lounge, with its wood burner and cosy furnishings, is the perfect spot to relax after a day spent exploring the many wonders of the Northern Highlands. Outside, the large courtyard is ideal for a canalside barbecue or picnic. Set amidst the myth and majesty of Loch Ness and the Great Glen, a break in Bona Lighthouse, whether you’re exploring the spectacular landscapes of the Highlands or simply relaxing and watching the world, is unforgettable.

    You don’t have to go far to enjoy this part of the world, you don’t even have to leave the garden. Just relax and watch the boats sail peacefully past. If you’re feeling more adventurous, a 15-minute drive will take you to Inverness where you will find something for everyone. From high street shopping in the Eastgate Centre, to boutique browsing in the Victorian market. Travel on open-top bus tours or enjoy forest walks, visit Inverness Castle, St Andrew’s Cathedral, the Pictish Fort on Craig Phadrig or the museum and art gallery to name but a few. Canal cruises will take you to Loch Ness, where you could be the next to catch sight of Scotland’s best-loved monster. But in case she doesn’t make an appearance, there’s plenty of other wildlife to enjoy, including red and roe deer, ospreys and eagles – you might even be lucky enough to spot rarely-seen wildcats or pine martens.

    On the Moray Firth the dolphin centre is the perfect place to see the world’s biggest bottlenose dolphins. Depending on the time of year you might even be able to do some whale-watching. Minke and killer whales both visit these waters and there have been sightings of sperm whales and pilot whales also. The centre offers hourly guided tours and a very informative learning centre children will love. A little further afield you may like to visit the lsle of Skye and the stunning beauty of the west coast or even take a day trip to the Orkney Isles.

    Bona Lighthouse can be booked with Bona Lighthouse Stables (CC511465) to accommodate up to six guests.
