Find cottages in Scotland

Holiday cottages in Scotland offer the perfect opportunity to relax in some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery. With an abundance of culture, fantastic heritage, stunning cities and a wealth of activities to suit all ages and interests, you’ll find more than enough to entertain all kinds of holidaymakers. So, whether you’re on two feet or two paws, a holiday in Scotland is guaranteed to have something to offer, and we’re going to make a few suggestions for the best things to see and do in the region.

With such a rich history, Scotland’s past is all but unavoidable. Thankfully, it’s equally fascinating, and some of the country’s best attractions combine the colourful tale of Scotland with some stunning landscapes. The Speyside Whisky Trail is just one such example. One of the main reasons so many choose Scottish holiday cottages, the trail takes in some of Scotland’s most renowned distilleries, offering a history lesson, a ‘wee dram’ and a showcase of stunning views. If you fancy a more vibrant experience from your holiday in Scotland then you may prefer to stay in and around Edinburgh. The capital city offers an intoxicating mix of medieval history, Georgian architecture and contemporary culture. A wealth of festivals and some fantastic shopping opportunities are just the icing on the cake, but if you fancy a more tranquil view then the views from Arthur’s Seat are unrivalled. Scotland’s wilder side is justly celebrated through the Cairngorms National Park. Larger than the Lake District, and boasting beautiful moorland, rivers, mountains, lochs and forests, it’s an unforgettable journey taking in some of Scotland’s most iconic topography. If you’d like to experience the more mythical side of Scottish history then our final recommendation is the legendary Loch Ness. Admire the dramatic ruins of Urqhart Castle and gaze over the loch’s gentle lapping waters to see if you can spot Nessie!

Thanks to a prevalence of wide-open expanses, many choose to enjoy Scottish cottages for a wealth of outdoor activities. Hiking, climbing, boating, cycling, horse riding and more are all perfectly suited for making the most of your stunning surroundings. Pet owners will be equally spoilt for choice with a wealth of fantastic locations to treat their four-legged friends. If you fancy somewhere to relax and explore at your own pace then you will be equally satisfied with Scotland. There are plenty of beautiful heritage attractions and a wealth of city break destinations offering a fun-filled and vibrant urban experience.

If you’re ready to begin your exploration, take a look at our featured holiday cottages in Scotland today.
