Take a look at our holiday cottages in the Borders, or the rugged Highlands, on the spectacular West Coast of Scotland, in the north east corner of Grampian with its castle and whisky trails, Royal Balmoral, miles of clean sandy beaches and great birdwatching, or in Perthshire with its green wooded hills, lochs and fish ladders, and if you're seriously into fishing - take a self-catering holiday on the banks of the river Spey, famed for its salmon.

The cities of Scotland offer a historic experience stay in Edinburgh - walk the Royal Mile, tour the castle and enjoy its attractions and culture, or visit Glasgow a city of culture with its many theatres, restaurants, art galleries and inspiring architecture. There is much to involve children with hands-on activities in historic buildings and family oriented tourist attractions.
