Holiday Cottages in Scotland

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 one of our Scotland Cottages and you’ll be introduced to a world where mythical monsters (allegedly) live in lakes, crumbling castles look as though they’re fresh from a fairytale, and the countryside 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 Scotland 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 in advance.

Where in Scotland should we go?

Scotland is packed with attractions and things to see and so, whether you’re on the coast 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, with 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.

The scene of 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 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.

About Scotland

What our customers are saying about our holiday cottages in scotland to rent.

    "This cottage is in a beautiful location, surrounded by fields regularly visited by deer and rabbits, and it's easy to find, and well placed for visiting much of Central Scotland. It's extremely peaceful and quiet, and while there are no shops in easy walking distance, it's just five minutes drive away from Bridge of Earn, and 15 minutes from Perth. Unfortunately, the cottage itself was a let-down. On the first night, the curtain pole in one bedroom fell down, and it was just luck that my elderly mother hadn't gone to bed yet, as the heavy pole landed on her pillow! The owners did arrange a repair for the Monday, but this meant we had to waste an entire morning waiting in the cottage for the joiner to come and do the repair. We were also told by the owners that they had already known the curtain pole was faulty, so it really should have been done before we arrived. Every one of us found the beds to be brick-hard and deeply uncomfortable, and the pillows very lumpy, so we all felt sore and sleep-deprived by the end of the week! The sofa in the living room seems to be a budget Ikea sort of thing, which feels quite narrow to sit on, and the two armchairs were lumpy, so it was impossible to really relax anywhere. This cottage is perfectly located for those with mobility issues, being all on one level and with easy access, but mobility issues can also mean that you want to spend a wee bit more time relaxing in the holiday accommodation, and the budget soft furnishings in this cottage meant that was impossible. The kitchen was constantly full of flies, so much so that preparing food meant constantly flapping flies away from the food, then hurrying through to the lounge with it to eat, as it would be impossible to eat at the kitchen table without the flies getting to your food before you! It's understandable that there will be lots of bugs in the area when you're surrounded by fields, but it would be a big improvement to find out where the flies are gaining access and block it up. The kitchen could also have benefited from some more equipment - there were enough pots and pans, but not a single baking tray to use in the oven. With some money spent to install properly comfy beds and sofa/armchairs, and the flies' access cut off, this would be a perfect wee holiday cottage, but the budget feel of the furnishings and equipment really let it down. It ended up being the most uncomfortable self catering accommodation we've ever had, and though we loved the area and the tranquillity of the setting, we would never book this cottage again."

    "Unfortunately my friend and I were extremely disappointed with our break at S23510. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon on a bitterly cold day. S23510 itself is well equipped and clean. Unfortunately we were unable to control the heating from inside S23510 itself as the owner controlled the heating from his house which was attached to S23510.On the first night which was extremely cold I went to the owner next door to tell him we had no heating and we were absolutely freezing. Unfortunately there was no answer at the door but strangely enough the heating came on shortly afterwards for a few hours!!The following day the owners approached us as we were leaving and asked if everything was all right. When I told them about the heating the gentleman said it was on 24 hours and we could control it from S23510. I can assure you this was not true and the control he showed us did not operate at all it was controlled from his own house!!!! Unfortunately because we were so cold we had decided to cut our stay short and come home the following day as I developed an eye problem as well.When we returned to S23510 that day The owner came out with an oil filled radiator and said we could use it if we were still cold. I cannot believe he actually done this as we would never contemplate using a radiator if the central heating was on. He also said he had turned the central heating up.We returned to S23510 at 3.30pm and timed when the heating was going on and off, The heating came on at 8.30pm and went off at 11pm. It came on the following day from 8am until 9am.Fortunately we were coming home on the Thursday anyway as we just couldn't tolerate the cold it was absolutely freezing and the owners were made aware of it on more than one occasion.So unfortunately our wee break turned into an extremely unpleasant experience, we were supposed to stay until the Saturday so it was an extremely expensive outlay for two nights stay. Very very disappointing."

    "We had a lovely week at the cottage. It was lovely and clean, cosy modern interior and the open fire was great. The information when booking however is not clear about the distance to the farm "close" could be anything really. There is a road running 10ft from the back of the cottage which is used by heavy farm traffic from approximately 8am in October (this may be earlier in spring/summer) There is an electrified fence and fields of cows 10ft or less at points from the cottage. If you have pets or children with you you may find this an issue as there is no enclosed garden space. We had a problem with the water. We had no hot water for the majority of our stay. We contacted the owner who dispatched her husband to fix it on two separate occasions. He advised that he thought the problem had been resolved from the previous week but obviously not. The issue worsened and the water was discoloured and a very bad smell was coming from the kitchen sink area, this unfortunately was not resolved by the time we left. The owner's husband did attempt repairs very quickly after reporting them but the problems obviously need a qualified plumber to resolve. We have made the owner aware of these issues. This review is left without malice and intended only to be informative for any future guests to be aware before booking."

    "WOW. What can I say?The cottage has everything you could possibly want and more.... The lovely thoughtful gifts of wine and eggs on our arrival was a really lovely idea. (Much appreciated)The beds are so comfortable (we didn`t want to get up). The whole cottage is clean and just like home from home.We met the owners and what lovely people they are... Friends for life!Poor cockerel has gone to a new home (not the cooking pot) although the owners have chickens and ducks, which out daughter loved feeding. It`s just so quiet and peaceful, which is what we was looking for.We found lot`s to do, walking on the beach with our dogs, Whiskey Experience Shop, Tea-Room, Lifeboat Centre, Trump Turnberry Golf Course and much more.Taking photographs of the beautiful area and the animals.Yes I didn`t get mobile phone signal but that`s part of being rural and not the fault of the owners.... (that`s your own provider)There is Wi-Fi and Sky TV if you need it.... If your looking for a quiet, get away from it all holiday then this is perfect.... Overlooking the fields with sheep in, ducks and just beautiful hills. We can`t wait to go back..... Thanks guys for welcoming us into your beautiful cottage, we had a fantastic time...."

    "Our family had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful house. The layout, comfort and beauty within, truly enabled a feeling of togetherness for us all. My father particularly liked his stunning en suite room, whilst my favourite was the open plan kitchen/lounge (felt distinctly 2 rooms too - amazing) The decor is very tasteful and the owners have thought of every little thing to make a difference to your holiday. Absolutely everything you could possibly need within a holiday home kitchen and separate utility room is there. You will never be bored in Ballater, with an abundance of walks/cycle trails on doorstep, cafes, restaurants, couple of pubs etc. If you’re a group of up to 8, looking for a holiday house in Ballater, I honestly wouldn’t look beyond this one. It was everything we hoped for and more and we’ve been visiting Ballater for many many years. We were a family of 8 with maximum of 6 staying at any one time. We were so so lucky to get this New Year cancellation week - it was very special for us and meant to be. Sincere thanks to the owners for sharing their lovely holiday house with those of us wise enough to book it."
