Self catering holiday cottages and log cabins in Scotland
Visit Scotland - that beautiful rugged land, home of the ancient Picts and Celts, where deer roam the heather covered hills, whisky distilleries ply visitors with their fine spirit and salmon leap in the rivers. That's just one image, but there are numerous facets to Scotland and its people:
- Historic Scotland with its castles, palaces and battle grounds. The land of Braveheart and Bonnie Prince Charlie.
- Scotland's lochs and rivers where leaping trout and salmon challenge fishermen. Tayside, Deeside and Speyside are popular destinations.
- Scotland for nature lovers where animals inhabit the forests and wide open spaces. Find otters, deer, seals, osprey, wild cats, owls, adders ... dolphins in Spey Bay.
- Scotland is a paradise for bird watchers. There are numerous bird sanctuaries and nature reserves. Try the north east of Scotland for coastal birds and inland for osprey and other birds of prey.
