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.

    Ref: 29784


    The Great Lodging is located in the heart of the seaside village of Anstruther, or Anster, as it’s known locally. The Great Lodging, known as ‘Fernbank’ for many years until the current owners revived the original name in 1993, consisted of four separate dwellings dating back to the 1500s. In 1643 it was owned by the Borthwick family who owned many estates nearby. In 1752 it was passed to George Dishington, who is strongly believed to be a descendant of Robert the Bruce, King of Scots. Dishington went on to buy the other properties that now form The Great Lodging. His descendants lived in the property until 1885 when it was owned by John Melville-Keay, captain of ‘Ariel’, a China tea clipper ship which almost won The Great Tea Race of 1866. The most famous of all tea clipper ships has to be the ‘Cutty Sark’ whose captain, George Moodie, was born in Fife.

    The aptly named Great Lodging Red House (ref 29785) provides accommodation spanning three floors. It is tastefully furnished throughout with antique and period furniture. Spiral stairs wind through the house to the living/dining room, then up to the bedrooms. After catching your breath and admiring the view from the double bedroom, continue to the top floor from where you will be rewarded with wonderful views over the Firth of Forth and a spacious second living room spanning the whole of the second floor.

    Garden Flat (ref 29784) forms part of the owner’s home and offers a real home from home atmosphere and makes a perfect retreat for 2 guests. It is furnished with period furniture and antique rugs and retains many original features including an inviting open fire in the living room and quarry tiled floors. The living and dining room also have quaint window seats which look onto the private, south-facing patio – a real sun trap on summer days.

    Guests are welcome to wander in the well-tended garden of the main house, shared with the owners - the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the area. Both properties can be booked together for up to 8 guests. Ideal for friends or two families who wish to holiday together, but also have some privacy.

    This picturesque corner of Fife, known as East Neuk, has many visitor attractions including many championship golf courses and is only 9 miles from St Andrews. Enjoy leisurely walks on the beach just 200 yards walk and treat yourself to fish and chips from an award-winning restaurant on the seafront. If you wish to venture further afield then the bustling city of Dundee can be reached in 30 minutes, and Perth and Edinburgh within an hours’ drive. Shops, restaurants and bars are all within a few hundred yards of your front door.
