Holiday Cottages In Scotland To Rent

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.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Scotland To Rent.

"This was disappointment stay as the description is not clear and is misleading and disappointment in dealing with owner. We would not go back to this place even if we would get it as a compensation for our frustration and disappointment !!!When we booked this cottage (now after our stay we know that it is a joke to call it cottage !!! ) we understood and were looking forward to enjoy one private cottage for us with private hot tub in peaceful settings with privacy.What a shock on our arrival, frustration and disappointment.It is not single cottage but large farm house divided into two - one bigger part of whole house is for rent for 8 persons with hot tub and - and second smaller part of the house rent for couples with hot tub.Our hot tub is next to driveway used for our place and for private farm house next to this place and as well as access for people who rent other part of the big farm house, as well it is not far from the road used as a access to houses in surrounding area - the hot tub is fully open to view from that road for passing cars.What a joke of wonderful privacy !!!The view from lounge is well see the photo.Bedroom is shared with neighbours bedroom not only next but with another bedroom underneath. You can hear the people through the wall in your bedroom which is absolutely uncomfortable.When you enter the cottage for first time it really smells and we had to open windows for a long time. Cleaning well some areas has not been cleaned for long time judging from spider webs there.Bed is another story - two single mattresses and the result is big paddle in middle - what a enjoyment !!! Hot tub - when who's ever take care of it has no idea about it - we have been in few hot tubs but in this one they use chlorine tablets very extensively.The first time after we used hot tub we smelled like we were bathing in chlorine . Then i realise to remove the small plastic basket with chorine tablets floating in hot tub and that helped. They even give you more tablets to put in if you feel and thats absolutely irensposnible. In hot tubs we have been in past someone usually came and checked the water and accordingly treated the water. It is UNHEALTHY to over use chlorine table in this way in hot tub.Another story is logging which took place just about our place so expect nice morning wake from machinery with combination of neighbours children's waking up in the morning. You can imagine what kind of peaceful setting and place you will get if you get large family next door like we did ( and we thought that we were lucky that it is not few young couples coming only for parting ) - then cake on top of it was when they started a party with loud music and drinking and we had to ask caretaker to step in.We arrived very late on the first day so we called immediately next morning owner and explain her situation as the description did mislead us 100 % and we want to get full refund and leave instantly. Well owner respond was " i have nothing to do with refund and you need to speak with agency. Later we have learnt that the owner was not telling as true and that she is fully responsible to make the decision. Was evident that the owner was only caring for the money she will receive from our stay. We tried to call her again later but she did not take our calls and did not return them as well and that was end of our communication with her. Disappointment!"

"Lovely private location. We stayed when it first opened and were delighted. However it has now become in need of refurbishment and is looking tired. No fluffy bathrobes this time which you need when getting out of the hot tub in cold weather. Skylight windows were filthy, and living room windows had lots of dead flies around it. The only aluminium foil was on the grill in the oven so we had to use that for our joint and it looked used. No wine in the welcome pack this time. Next door had a group of young people with no consideration for us as a middle aged couple looking for somewhere peaceful. Loud talking, girls giggling late at night and first thing in the morning. We came for peace and quiet. Welcome pack is some milk, coffee pods and some home made bread. Chase longue is wooden, fine for kids to sit on but not adults. Size fine for two adults. Dishwasher is very good and requires no pre-soaking. Potato peeler is a bit blunt. Frying pan ok but only one. No smaller pan if you are doing a fry up. Bathroom has a heated towel rail which was great but no under-floor heating. Shower pressure varies and you can't take the shower head off. Hob is halogen and fine. Positioning of fire blanket and extinguisher a bit dodgy right next to oven and difficult should something catch on cooker. Bistro set which we were looking forward to using sitting outside with wine was thrown in a heap in the top right hand corner of the garden area. Looked in need of some varnish. Nice views from the bedroom and living room. Whirly gig is over a fence in a field of longish grass which would risk ticks. The steep path driving up from the road is a wreck and if you have a low slung undercarriage then you risk damage to your vehicle. Very stoney and potholes with the centre of the path raised. Not good for our Focus. They need to fill it in a bit. Would be treacherous in very bad weather. You could feel the stones flying off underneath tyres as we went up in first gear. Lovely private location and good place for a young couple on their first getaway, especially with the hot tub. However not value for money any more. Handle missing off the bath and tv wasn't much better than terrestrial plus a couple of channels. Wifi but we never got an internet signal and had to use mobile data. Enjoyed it the first time but think we'd stay in Weem next time. Same nice views and nearer the hotel and easier to get the car to."

"The cottage was historically interesting, beautifully clean, and Jenette was friendly and helpful. There were some downsides, though I feel mean mentioning them. The back garden was not very dog-proof, despite the addition of a couple of gates that our cockapoo bounded past immediately; the stairs were very steep; the bed was softer than we were used to; and the kitchen was a bit cramped. Equipment levels were inconsistent: there must have been about 50 plates but only two forks, and we ended up arranging our groceries on the worktop because the cupboards were so full of other stuff. The TV and DVD were not connected when we arrived, so we had to pull the units out and disconnect the Freesat to free up the scart cable. There were three radios but they were all non-working and ornamental. Overall we felt we were squatting in someone else's home rather than being given the space to make it our own."

"We stayed here as my husband was working in Glasgow. It is in superb location, not far from Mugdock Country park and Highland way . You can get to Loch Lomond in under half hour and then take a train in central Glasgow as 2 mins walk to nearest train station. The cottage is beautifully kept, loved the garden room with sunshine coming. Jenette was on hand if you needed any help. The cottage was highly equipped with everything to higher standard than most with lots of cooking stuff, all small things you need for a stay. We loved it here and could also walk our dog to nearby park up the hill for short walks. The beautifu Mugdock park is amazing and had lots of walks within 2 mile drive away that links into highland way. My dog Jack loved that place. There are lots of supermarket ranges nearby and so close to main city for culture. We will come back definately"

"Had a very enjoyable stay at the property, it had everything you require for your stay including kitchen essentials ( washing up liquid, dish cloths, kitchen roll, salt & pepper sugar hand soaps etc ) the only thing I was disappointed with was the cleanliness of the kitchen surfaces, the kettle and toaster had a layer of greasy dust on them also the canisters on the work top, the hob and oven front weren't clean and the oven gloves were dirty with dried on food. I understand that it is no more than day to day use from previous guests but when you are paying a good sum of money to stay in a property I would expect a little more attention to detail.The rest of the property was very clean and comfortable and the nearby town of Banchory had all the amenities you could want, overall a very nice holiday."
