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.

Alistair - verified booking

"This is a stunning little cottage very clean and the owners are very nice and very helpful. I am loathed to give any negatives but there are one or two that have to be mentioned. Firstly we have cottage holidays in the UK two or three times over a year and this cottage is expensive for its size in comparison to the cottages we rent in England and Wales at the same time of the season. It is a studio cottage rental but the best has been made out of the space available. The cottage is situated behind the owners house in the back garden and it is not really for anyone that has mobility problems.The chairs give little support and there is no couch due to space availability.On a positive note, the kitchen and bathroom facilities are good although the kitchen has limited work surface areas, but, plenty of utensils if you are cooking your own food. This is a very warm cottage if you venture out in the low season. Good television reception and the Wi Fi is fine This property would be good if you like to play Golf with Turnberry ten minutes away or if you like walking. Nearby historical sites are Culzean Castle and better still if you take photographs is Dunure Castle which is awesome. Then a fairly short drive to Alloway for the Robert Burns experience. There is a grocery store just a short distance away which has almost everything you could want including what I suspect to be the biggest selection of flavoured crisps in the UK, never knew the flavours existed. I like to fish for trout and there are quite a few waters available with just a short drive. All in all we enjoyed the visit, I would not return due to my personal health problems, I simply just need a bit more space and I would not rent a studio accommodation again knowing what I know now. But for all you healthy couples out there, this is a good rental and well worth a visit !!"

"I love visiting Holy Loch Manor because it is a place where I can go with my friends and family and have a great time. It is the best place for kids because there is tonnes of space for big games like capture the flag, football, rugby and cops and robbers and many more!!! Additionally in the garden there are great trees to climb and cool stone houses and bushes to hide in so you never get board! In the house there are lots of rooms to do shows, play games and have BRILLIANT pillow fights!!!!!! OUTSIDE: In the mornings we enjoy going outside to the beach and collecting shells and playing in the water. In the summer we sometimes go swimming. One of the best things is that in the evenings you can get wrapped up in hats and scarfs and go down to the beach to have a brilliant bonfire and toast lots of yummy marshmallows!!!! ROUND ABOUT: We have a great neighbourhood, everyone is lovely and is always up for a chat. Near us there is a great pier to catch fish for dinner, sometimes you even see seals!! Round about the house are lots of mountains and rural areas to go walking and exploring like Pucks Glen, Benmore Gardens and the Kilmun Arboretum. If there is ever a rainy day there are also indoor places nearby that do soft play, laser matrix and indoor climbing and the local swimming pool is cool and has a flume. Finally I think the Manor is a fantastic place to go with you and your family to have adventures and quality family time together!!"

"We have been lucky enough to stay at this fantastic location a number of times and would heartily recommend it to other families or groups of friends. From the moment you step on the ferry to Dunoon, you can feel the relaxation beginning. And arriving at the stunning ‘big White House’ with its own private beach, the holiday feeling continues. The house has beautiful gardens which we have enjoyed everything from an Easter egg hunt in with our kids, to long family lunches. Inside the house there is a strong family feeling which, vast as it is, feels very homely. There’s plenty of space for everyone to enjoy and the views of the Holy loch you wake up to each morning are something else. When we’ve managed to drag ourselves away from tea and cooked breakfasts by the Aga, we have had a brilliant time exploring Strone and the surrounding area. Plenty of things to keep the kids entertained including woodland walks and toasting marshmallows on the beach, plus, if you don’t feel like cooking, there are many family friendly pubs nearby for lunches or early teas."

"A lovely cottage given that it sits in the grounds of Mellerstain House, so lots of nice parkland to roam around. Great sized bedrooms upstairs, but small downstairs bedroom and living area a bit cramped (for 2 adults and 3 kids and dog!). The cottage was generally tidy and clean, however an annual spring cleaning job is needed e.g. cobwebs and dust on higher window areas, the 4-poster bed canopy (!!) and the on-suite bathroom window of one bedroom which was admittedly high up, was so dirty it was unbelievable ;( and must surely have not been cleaned in years. This let down the overall otherwise nice appearance of the cottage. Crockery needs replaced, many chipped and cracked bowls and plates. I mentioned some negatives but it wouldn't stop me booking the cottage again, overall good."

"From the moment you open the door you know it's going to be a lovely experience. The cottage is tastefully decorated with attention to detail. Electrical items are high spec and furnishings very comfortable. As I stayed in mid October the weather wasn't great and it took a little while to warm the cottage up, an extra radiator in the hallway would have helped and the icing on the cake would have been able to use the open fire or had the use of a log burner. I would imagine the garden would be a joy in the summer months. Pinwherry is a tiny place with no local amenities but Ballantrae is just a short drive and has a well stocked shop. I went to unwind and recovery from an illness so found the peace and quiet just what the doctor ordered. Highly recommended a stay at Bridge cottage."
