Northern Highlands and Islands holiday cottages

Where Scotland’s most deserted beaches are hidden

UK | Scotland | Northern Highlands and Islands

The Highlands is a vast area in the north of Scotland where peninsulas are long and turn to islands which spike into the North Sea. The landscape is hilly, green and mountainous with dramatic coastlines which point towards the Orkneys and the Outer Hebrides.

Our Highland cottages position you perfectly for taking in the mountains, and the coast where bottlenose dolphins play. Walking, skiing, castle exploration and water sports are popular. Hop over to St Kilda, a World Heritage Site and volcanic archipelago off the coast of the Outer Hebrides.
