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.

    Located in West Wemyss, a charming conservation village on the shores of the Forth, Driftwood Cottage sits on a sunny hill which has views towards Edinburgh, and is only a short stroll down the seafront and the old harbour.  Driftwood Cottage offers ample accommodation for a family of four and the cottage is well equipped with all you need during your stay.  There are two comfortable bedrooms and a small enclosed garden to the rear and the property is pet friendly.  From the front of the cottage you can glimpse a view of the sea.  West Wemyss is a traditional Fife coast village with harbour, creels and white-washed cottages, it is quaint and tiny but it has its own Cafe and Bistro and is only minutes away from central Scotland’s major road networks.  Scotland’s beautiful capital city Edinburgh is less than an hour away and St Andrews is only 40 minutes.
    West Wemyss has a lovely cafe and bistro The Walk Inn which is only 150 meters away and serves homemade food and regularly hosts quizzes and social events.  The coastline is peaceful and one of our favourite walks is to head from the cottage on foot along the coast to Dysart, stopping at the Harbour Masters House for coffee, then walking around the harbour and along the beach to Ravenscraig Park and Castle, great on your own or with a four legged friend.  Our guest pack outlines other walks and places to visit locally. 
    In 1985 the village became part of the designated conservation area, and over the years the harbour has been redeveloped for leisure craft, the old village restored and coastal defences improved.  The village has quaint old buildings and narrow steppped lanes leading between the streets.
    Driftwood Cottage is built in the style of the traditional Fife fisherman’s homes but was completed only recently, so it’s bright and modern and offers all the comfortand luxury you need to really unwind on your holiday.  The owners are passionate about promoting the best of Scotland and are delighted to be able to offer you a flavour of this through their beautiful holiday home in Fife.
    With its white-washed walls, sash-and-case windows and red pan tiled roof, Driftwood Cottage really is as pretty as a picture.  From the front of the house there are views of the Forth and the Bass Rock, and the back looks onto quiet woodland.  The house is immaculately presented and offers spacious and welcoming accommodation for 4 people on 2 levels.  Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms with quality memory topped mattresses.  Either King and Super King (US Californian King) or King and Twin beds and a fresh, contemporary bathroom.  Downstairs is a large open-plan living/dining area, a well-fitted kitchen and separate cloakroom.  3 TV’s all with DVD players, an iPod docking station, and a selection of DVD’s books and board-games.
