The Most Luxurious Cottages in the Northern Highlands

Sometimes you just want to be pampered and live a life of luxury when you go away. While hotels may not be your cup of tea, or you’re looking for more independence, luxury self catering cottages could be the ideal solution. There are a number of plush cottages dotted throughout Scotland, offering spectacular views, high quality facilities and luxurious extra features.

The Blairquhan Estate

This Grade A listed castle and gardens not only has castle bedrooms one can stay in, but there are also eight luxurious cottages within the estate. The cottages sleep from four to eight people depending on your choice and come complete with comfortable beds, gardens, large living spaces and kitchens and all the facilities you could need. You’re free to roam the castle grounds – acres upon acres of woodlands and gardens, where you can really get away from it all.

The Boat House

This beautiful beach front location for two is great for a romantic getaway. Situated on the remote and beautiful Cowel Peninsula, it has its own private beach stretching a mile and a half. Secluded and naturally stunning, there’s no shortage of things to do in the area. It’s a hotbed for anyone who appreciates natural beauty and wildlife. Hiking and cycling can be enjoyed nearby and the town of Dunoon is close.

Balwearie Mill

Be careful when you book this luxury cottage, as once you get there you may never want to leave! The property sleeps ten, but there is another cottage next door, sleeping an additional five. It’s excellent for large groups, family gatherings and enjoying life to the max. There’s an indoor swimming pool, private hot tub, balcony and a games room with a snooker table. On top of that there are spacious en-suite bedrooms, large, comfortable living spaces and a kitchen you’ll be happy to cook in. The features go on and on, including a sunken bath. Outside of the house there is a large garden and terrace, all tucked away nicely. The surrounding area is full of things to do, with a number of golf courses close by.
