Scotland is a country bordered by the cool, deep waters of the North Sea and the numerous lochs and firths that swirl between hundreds of Scottish islands and islets. Historic battlegrounds, imposing regal castles and five UNESCO World Heritage Sites make Scotland an inspirational place to visit.
If you choose one of our Scotland cottages you can spend time walking, cycling or picnicking on the heather and bracken strewn fields or following coast paths around the miles of open coastline. The National Parks of the Cairngorms and the Trossachs and Loch Lomond offer outdoor exploration and activity. Ski, surf, walk, climb or just sample a flavour of the country at a distillery.
