Our collection of holiday cottages in Scotland give you the chance to experience everything from fresh scallops in the distant Hebrides, to historic castles in the borders and the best haunts in vibrant cities.

We find, inspect and select places that will put you in touch with everything that a holiday in Scotland has to offer. There are arty family homes in Edinburgh, lochside cabins in the Trossachs National Park and modern Scottish cottages on remote, beautiful Skye. 

Let our unique places in Scotland introduce you to a country far more diverse than Hogmanay, hiking and kilted men. Discover a wilderness that ranges from white beaches to high crags, fabulous food beyond the fryer and a cultural scene far deeper and wider than Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe.

Our holiday cottages in Scotland

We look for something a bit different in our cottages in Scotland. We want you to feel like you’ve come home the moment you walk through the door, which means finding places with personality, created by passionate people who care about what they do. We look for quality and comfort, but also touches of magic and a warm welcome, whether it’s a hug and a scratch behind the ears at our dog-friendly cottages, or just a hamper and a note at a self-catering place. Our collection of unique cottages, bothies and even castles will show you the best of Scotland’s scenery, history and culture. Sign up to our newsletter to see our latest discoveries.   


Where to stay in Scotland

The various regions of Scotland offer everything from the emptiest wilderness to the buzz of world-class events and festivals, and our places to stay are run by people passionate about welcoming to you a new area or helping you rediscover an old favourite. With the remote western isles, especially Skye, often topping the lists of most beautiful places in Scotland, it can take some getting around, but it’s more than worth investing the time, whether you’re nipping over the border to Ayr and Edinburgh, pushing north to Perth and Stirling or going all the way to the Outer Hebrides. 


What to do in Scotland

Even on a short trip, it’s possible to take in a few of the best places to visit in Scotland and fill your weekend breaks with anything from whale watching to whisky tasting. Within half an hour of leaving Glasgow you can be winding your way through the Trossachs and skirting the banks of Loch Lomond before heading for the West Coast. Keep an eye on our blog, Detour for roundups of things to do in Scotland, the best beaches in Scotland and other inspiring itineraries north of the border and for all our destinations.
