Why Book a Holiday Cottage in Scotland?

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

Self-catering and country cottages in Scotland are popular due to the flexibility and home from home feel that they offer. 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 where you can be immersed in, and be 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 if you wish, and regain some calm. Book a coastal cottage and enjoy walks by the beach or a country cottage and escape to the countryside.

The Scots themselves tend to be a friendly and welcoming people who can make a self-catering holiday that bit more enjoyable with their friendly nature. Also, if you enjoy wildlife watching, whilst on a cottage holiday in Scotland you may be lucky enough to spot amazing wildlife such as eagles, deer or wildcats.
