Scotland’s six cities are spread out over a spectacularly diverse landscape and include two of the finest urban centres in Europe, Glasgow and Edinburgh, each with its own distinctive appeal. Edinburgh’s complex history and elegant tone is emphasised by its ancient castle and five Michelin-starred restaurants.  Glasgow, 50 miles west, is Scotland’s largest city with a particularly vibrant arts scene. Both have huge appeal for shoppers and museum and gallery-lovers, with easy access to exquisite countryside, too. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park lie close to Glasgow, while an hour north of Edinburgh the Highlands of Perthshire rise.

Those dramatic peaks become especially scenic towards northerly Inverness, Capital of the Highlands, where wonderful hill-walking opportunities surround iconic lakes such as Loch Ness. To the west, Oban offers a gateway to other-worldly islands including Mull and the Inner Hebrides. Nearby Fort William, close to the gaunt rocks of Glen Coe and Ben Nevis, is known as the Adventure Capital of Europe.

Quieter enjoyment lies on the east coast where the whisky country of Speyside near Aberdeen contains half of Scotland’s distilleries. And it’s also worth exploring the far northerly islands of Orkney and the Shetlands, where Scottish and Nordic backgrounds mix intriguingly. Scotland’s vast numbers of walking trails include the highly popular West Highland Way, leading from near Glasgow past the foot of Ben Nevis; also the Fife Coastal Path, starting above Edinburgh, passing fine seascapes and good food areas towards St. Andrews, the home of golf.

So why wait? Book yourself a luxury holiday cottage in Scotland and enjoy this amazing part of the UK, whether it’s a short break or a two week holiday you’re sure to find the right cottage for you on our listings.
