Introducing Scotland Holiday Accommodation

Home of the haggis and the Agony Bags (AKA bagpipes), Scotland might be small, but it packs an awful lot into its tartan britches. Book a Scotland Holiday Cottage and you'll be introduced to a world where mythical monsters (allegedly) live in lakes, crumbling historic castles look as though they're fresh from a fairytale, and the great outdoors is just begging to be explored.

As well as being one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, Scotland has a thriving and vibrant arts scene going on. You'll find a theatre or live-music venue in most of the larger towns and cities – but nowhere is Scotland's dedication to artistic endeavours more proudly displayed than at the Edinburgh Festival. Our Scottish holiday cottages tend to book out fast around festival-time so, if you want to treat your family or loved one to a week or so of the beautiful, the moving and the downright bizarre, it's worth getting your skates on and booking a holiday cottage in advance.

As well as holiday cottages, Scotland is packed with attractions and things to see and so, whether you're on the coast, just over the Scottish Borders or enjoying the countryside inland. For a look at the scenery at its unspoilt best, it doesn't get much better than the Isle of Skye. With mountains clawing at the sky, glittering lochs and a ragged, rugged coastline, it's a feast for the senses. For hustle and bustle with a bit of history thrown in, you can't beat Edinburgh. Riddled with winding backstreets, excellent shopping and the imposing castle sitting on top, booking one of holiday cottages in Scotland here gives you access to everything you could need for a break.


With a rich history featuring many a kilted battle and the largest lake in Britain, Loch Lomond is a great place to escape the summer crowds. Not to be outdone, Loch Ness is the only loch in Scotland that boasts its own beastie and you can take part in holiday activities including monster-spotting trips across its tranquil waters. And then there's the food to consider- Scotland offers some of the finest fare in the country, from outstanding fish and seafood to the much-prized Aberdeen Angus. Whatever you want from your break, booking one of our holiday cottages in Scotland is the first step towards a well-earned rest.
