Scottish cottage collection of fabulous places to stay in the summer

Book a cottage break in Scotland this summer. Scotland is divine for holidays and offers something off the beaten track in addition to culture and wildlife treks.  It is the best holiday destination for people who like to discover new experiences and are happy to forgo a traditional beach holiday. Scotland has some of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in the world, often garnished with seals and a motley assortment of birds. You can be guaranteed to find shells, sand dunes, charming coastal villages and even have the entire beach to yourself. You may wish to stay in a Scottish coastal cottage is you would like to be lulled to sleep by the waves.

Inland, there are cottage gems of all kinds; secret, secluded places where deer venture and barn owls hoot at night. A Scottish rural break can be semi-isolated or remote. Look for holiday cottages in the north of Scotland and the islands to achieve complete isolation. Find that special cottage or lodge with views of lochs, tall pine forests and mountains in Scotland’s national parks of the Cairngorms or the sleek dreamy scenery of  Loch Lomond and Trossachs  to make a summer complete.

Rent pine lodges and stone-built cottages nearer Scotland’s cities and towns for a twin experience of country and vulture. The tranquillity of the countryside soothes and clams after days of sightseeing and admiring the cityscapes of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth or Aberdeen.

Admire our Scottish cottage collection of fabulous places to stay in the summer.
