Scotland holiday cottages

UK | Scotland

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 six UNESCO World Heritage Sites make Scotland an inspirational place to visit, whatever you look for in a holiday.

The Scottish landscape is a magnet for those who seek adventure in the great outdoors. 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 Loch Lomond and the Trossachs offer outdoor exploration and activity, plus you can challenge yourself to scale the UK’s highest peak – Ben Nevis. Ski, surf, walk, climb to your heart’s content.

Scotland also has a rich history that begs to be delved into. Uncover sites of bloody battles, see once-majestic castles in the stark landscape and learn about the unique traditions of these still-rich communities. Or visit one of the country’s thriving cities for cutting-edge culture, whether you choose to browse art galleries, watch a play or listen to live music.

And no holiday in Scotland is complete without sampling some of the country’s famous cuisine. Follow a whisky trail for a sip of the national drink fresh from the source, dine on sumptuous seafood freshly caught from the wild North Sea or try a famous dish like haggis, neaps and tatties in a fine-dining restaurant.
