Scotland, or bonny Scotland as it is aptly named, is a great location for a country cottage holiday.

The Scottish islands are particularly peaceful and just wonderful for relaxing breaks. There are opportunities throughout the Scottish countryside for wildlife watching and Scotland attracts many keen golfers and fishers. The Highlands of Scotland are world renowned for their beauty and Aberdeenshire is well known for its castle trail and numerous whisky distilleries. Scotland has a real soulfulness to it. In Scotland you can be immersed and amazed by the power of nature. There are glens, lochs, mountains and beaches. If you are looking for a really remote or truly tranquil holiday, in certain parts of Scotland, it is possible to find a place where you can really get away from everything and pretty much everyone and regain some calm.
