Holiday cottages in Scotland are very popular because they put you right at the heart of everything the country has to offer - many cottages are picked because they are in close proximity to local attractions and landmarks. Whether you’re in Scotland to enjoy the climate in Argyll, or the breathtaking sights in capital city Edinburgh, holiday cottages offer a cost-effective and comfortable way to go about your trip. And with many properties providing the latest mod-cons (some even have swimming pools and tennis courts), you’re guaranteed a welcoming and memorable stay.
Scotland has a long history with holiday cottages because they are one of the best ways to explore a new area - people journey there for different reasons and holiday cottages in Scotland provide easy access to their preferred activities. Skiing in Scotland is very popular, and there are many properties located near the slopes designed specifically to accommodate skiers. Golf breaks are also a popular pastime - hardly surprising considering the number of famous courses in Scotland, such as Gleneagles and St. Andrews. A number of outdoor enthusiasts visit Scotland for its crisp air and beautiful scenery, often staying in cottages close by natural landmarks and lakes.
Families, large groups and couples can all find the perfect Scottish holiday cottage, complete with the features to make their trip as enjoyable as possible. Large groups can rent big luxury self-catering properties, which work out very cost-effectively when compared to hotels, where each room costs the same regardless of the number of people staying. Couples can also find ideal properties, with rustic charm and period features that provide a romantic backdrop to a short break away. And because you can book directly with cottage owners, there’s no reason you can’t add a bottle of champagne or bouquet of flowers to get your trip to Scotland off to the right start.
