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.

    Ref: 30810


    Located in over 20 acres of gardens and woodland, adjacent to Corsewall House, there are lots of walks around the estate and down to the sea you can enjoy. Garden Cottage (ref 30810) forms the west wing of the 18th-century Corsewall House and has wonderful sea views across Loch Ryan. High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) is a traditional, detached, Galloway farmhouse, built in the local vernacular style of south west Scotland and entirely surrounded by open farmland. Stables Cottage (ref 30812) is in the heart of Corsewall Estate, surrounded by historic woodland and overlooking an extensive walled kitchen garden. In late January and February, the woods feature charming drifts of snowdrops followed by daffodils and in April and May the hue turns to purple with acres of bluebells. There is colour in the gardens almost all the way through the year starting with camellia from January to March, followed by a riot of colour in April and May as the rhododendrons and azaleas – pinks, reds, creams, yellows, purples and white – come into flower. Indeed, one of our rhododendron, known as Christmas cheer, comes out in mid December. The autumn sees the hydrangeas providing colour all the way through to November. There is oodles of wildlife to spot from roe deer and hares to barn owls, woodpeckers and most importantly, this area is one of the last bastions of the red squirrel. The cottage comes complete with its own red squirrel feeder, where guests can watch any number of cheeky red squirrels feeding ferociously all day. The owners record spotted at one of the feeders is currently six. Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and The Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From a historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – evidence can be seen of this on a walk along the bay and also throughout the woods at Corsewall Estate, which was requisitioned by the Royal Canadian Air Force during the War. The Galloway coastline offers an abundance of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore. Boat Bank is within a 1 mile walk of Stables Cottage (ref 30812) and Garden Cottage (ref 30810), while Port Beg is within 1 mile of High Clachan Farmhouse (ref 30811) accessed via road. Both beaches are perfect for picnics. Walking, golf, sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking water sports and cycling are all available nearby. There are several beautiful gardens including Logan Botanical which benefits from the mild climate of the Gulf Stream. Shop and pub ½ mile, restaurant 4 miles.

    Ground floor: Living room/kitchen with wooden floors. Utility room. 1 double (6ft zip and link, can be twin) bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet.
