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.

    Loch Tay Lodges are beautiful self catering holiday properties (refs 31282, 31283, 31284 and 31285), set on a working sheep and beef farm in the heart of Scotland. Accessed by a well-maintained 55 yard dirt track, they form part of Remony Estate, which surrounds the picturesque village of Acharn, and enjoys stunning scenery overlooking Loch Tay towards Ben Lawers and Schiehallion. Red deer abound on the hills, red squirrels scurry about the established woods and trees, red grouse call on the heather, black grouse lek in early mornings and red kites circle overhead - a veritable wildlife paradise if you know where to look! The stone built Grade B listed building was originally constructed in the 1800s by the Earl of Breadalbane for house crofters. This has now been sympathetically converted to provide comfortable holiday lodges, whilst retaining many of its original features. It is located between the village and the loch, with good parking, a play area for children and easy access down to the loch where dogs may be walked. A secluded beach and jetty with access to a private boat shed and moorings are a temptation to those wishing to use the estate boats, sail their own, fish or simply paddle or have a picnic. Visit some of the many local restaurants and bars, where you will receive a warm Highland welcome and be able to taste the local produce. Nearby Kenmore boasts a village shop and post office, from where a shopping list may be ordered and placed in your lodge to await your arrival. Aberfeldy, the local town, can provide almost anything else you may need. Activities available locally include hill walking, bird watching, horse riding, golfing, fishing, sailing, white water rafting and other watersports. There are gentle walks, scenic tours and visits to castles and distilleries as well. Whether you are seeking peace and seclusion or a more action-packed break, there is something for everyone. Each season of the year has its own special appeal. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
