Planning to rent a holiday cottage in Scotland this summer?

Highland Games are in full force in Scotland during August and what better time to come for a few days than to watch or take part in this traditional Scottish event.

Come and discover pine lodges, lochside cottages, fishing lodges, hunting lodges and traditional holiday homes in Scotland to book during August. All of the properties displayed on this page still have some available August dates.

Scottish Highland Games in August

Coastal cottages in Scotland

August is the month when the sun shines its hardest and allows the population to makes the most of its beaches, woodlands and national parks. There are arguably more unspoilt beautiful sandy beaches in Scotland than anywhere in Britain. Because the season is so very short in Scotland, it does not make commercial sense to develop them, hence they are left to nature and the elements to shape and create a coastal wilderness for wildlife. Thousands of sea birds thrive along Scotland’s coast and a walk along the beach with flocks of birds rising as you approach can be quite enthralling.

Coastal cottage breaks in August

Holiday accommodation of every possible persuasion can be found in Scotland and much of it aimed at specific groups of holidaymaker. Coastal areas will have fishermen’s cottages to rent and traditional buildings. It can be a brilliant experience to rent a cottage overlooking a beach or harbour, to watch the boats coming and going, the wildlife and local activities.

Scottish holiday cottages with fishing

Owners of holiday cottages and pine lodges near rivers and lochs make use of their natural assets and offer fly fishing as a holiday activity. Look for accommodation near the Rivers Deveron and Spey.

Scottish scenery can be quite magical and not just in the national parks. Mountain, forest and coastal views are all equally magnificent. Castles, ancient stone circles, lighthouses, whisky distilleries are all features on a Scottish landscape. Tourist trails have been developed to make discovering these simpler.

Cottages in scotland to rent during August with loch or river views

Take Scottish island breaks by the end of August

The remote Scottish islands should be visited no later than August for the best of the summer weather. These offer isolated cottages where relaxation is total and people can feel truly as one with nature.

So many superlatives spring to mind when writing about Scotland and we encourage people to go and see for themselves. It truly is a wondrous place and not too far from home for most Brits.

Midge Alert in August

One word of warning is planning to visit the west Scottish coast in August. Midges can be the bane of holidaymakers, especially when conditions are still and damp. These tiny biting insects hang around in clouds and disappear in strong sunlight. If you plan to go to the Scottish Highlands and west coast, invest in insect repellent.

Scottish Highlands in August

As mentioned earlier, August is a great month for a Scottish holiday because there are so many annual events to entertain tourists and locals. Festivals and fayres are held all over Scotland. Some of the biggest take place in Scotland’s major cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Perth.

Events in Edinburgh during August

Another big Scottish event that takes place in August is the Edinburgh Tattoo. People from all around the world come to observe the marching bands and swinging kilts.

Additional festivals that take place from the end of the 1st week of August until the end of the month:

The Edinburgh Art Festival offers a platform to performers from around the globe. There are free street performances and various concerts around the city.

Edinburgh International Festival which hosts classical concerts, opera and dance

Edinburgh Fringe Festival for last three weeks of August, which is an eclectic mix of song, dance, comedy and outrageous displays that audiences of all ages may appreciate.
