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.

    Ref: CC511466
    If you’re looking for a true taste of Scotland then you have found it with a stay at Dochgarroch Cottage. Deep in the heart of the Highlands this beautifully restored heritage property is just a short distance from Loch Ness, the Great Glen and some of Scotland’s most breathtaking scenery.


    The peace and quiet makes it hard to believe you’re just off the A82 and close to the city of Inverness. All the up to date appliances in the cottage, including dishwasher and DVD, make it easy to relax and enjoy this welcoming 19th Century home. Upstairs there’s one double and one twin bedroom plus a family bathroom. Unwind in the traditional roll top bath tub, admiring open views over the surrounding hills. Downstairs there’s the large kitchen diner and a cosy lounge area with a welcoming wood burner. And if you want to get your fill of the fresh Scottish air, step outside into a small private garden with outdoor furniture. What better way to get the full flavour of the Highlands?


    You don’t have to go far to enjoy this part of the world, in fact, you don’t even have to leave the garden. Just relax and watch the boats sail peacefully down the Caledonian Canal right at the end of the front lawn. Take a walk along the towpath to admire the surrounding scenery then visit the local restaurant and sample some of its delicious home cooked meals, all right on your doorstep.


    If you’re feeling more adventurous, a 15 minute drive will take you to Inverness where you’ll find something for everyone from high street shopping in the Eastgate Centre, boutique browsing in the Victorian market, open top bus tours, Inverness Castle, St. Andrew’s Cathedral, the Pictish fort on Craig Phadrig or the museum and art gallery. So much to see and do for all ages.


    Canal cruises will take you to Loch Ness, where you could be 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, 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 also been sightings of sperm whales and pilot whales. The centre offers hourly guided tours and an informative learning centre that children will love. Take a trip to Culloden Battlefield and the Bronze Age Clava Cairns and on to Nairn with its sweeping sandy beaches and the home of two renowned links golf courses. Visit Aviemore and the Cairngorms National Park with its vast swathes of unspoilt countryside. For the less energetic, sit back, relax and unwind in the tranquillity that is Dochgarroch Cottage.
