Holiday Cottages Scotland
From John o’Groats in the far north of the country, to the Southern Uplands and long border with England; Scotland is a hugely diverse nation that is just begging to be discovered. No other part of our great kingdom has so many idyllic landscapes and rural retreats to offer, than this country, and this means that there is now an ample supply of holiday cottages Scotland to choose between.
If you’re contemplating staying in holiday cottages Scotland, boy, do you have a big decision to make on where you would most like to stay? Will it be in the east of the country, on the North Sea coast? Perhaps you’d prefer to head inland to the mountainous and picture postcard landscapes of the Highlands? Whichever area you eventually opt for, holiday cottages Scotland should be readily available to welcome you.
Conveniently, if you prefer to be closer to one of Scotland’s largest cities, holiday cottages Scotland should still be of benefit to you. Once you have finished exploring either Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Dundee for the day, you can simply head out to one of the holiday cottages Scotland and completely shut the world away for the rest of the evening. This will give you a taste of both sides of Scottish life.
To be fair though, holiday cottages Scotland are at their most popular in the rural locales of the country. Who needs to jet off to other parts of the world when we have the likes of Loch Ness and Ben Nevis within our very own country? Indeed, this is exactly why thousands of people head north into Scotland each and every year; to experience the last real wildernesses in the British Isles.
Of course though, there is even more to holiday cottages Scotland than just those that can be found on the mainland. Look at any map of Scotland and you will notice the archipelago of islands that lie to the west of the country. These are the Western Isles and are definitely some of the most remote reaches of the UK. If you are really looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, head in this direction my friends and check out some of the holiday cottages Scotland in the area.
The weather in Scotland is about as diverse as its landscapes: generally speaking, the farther west you head, the wetter the climate will tend to be. The East Coast receives the least rain and can definitely hit the highest temperatures during the summer months. Snow can be quite rare on some of the Western Isles as they are under such a strong influence from the Gulf Stream. Conversely, the highlands and east can receive some quite significant falls, therefore winter breaks should be planed out accordingly for any stay in holiday cottages Scotland.
