Scottish Islands Cottage Holidays

The Scottish Islands primarily consist of the four main island groups: Shetlands, Orkney and the Hebrides (Inner and Outer). Many of the holiday cottages are converted (and lovingly restored) crofts.  There are literally thousands of smaller islands all around this area, only some of which are inhabited. Not all are sea-based, as the huge Lochs also play host to many small islands.

Seacote House, Stornoway, Outer Hebrides

Seacote House, Stornoway

Very comfortable and large 4-bedroom house with disabled access and Wi-Fi sleeping 8 in Outer Hebrides. Situated on the edge of Stornoway on a working croft. Ideally situated for touring Lewis and Harris and discovering all their wonderful beaches. Pets welcome.

Whilst the islands are stunningly beautiful the seas around can be treacherous. For example, the Corryvreckan tide between Scarba and Jura is one of the largest whirlpools in the world. Each island offers something unique to the visitor and all have quite different landscapes; Skye is mountainous. Once you’ve made the climb up The Old Man of Storr or the Cullen Range, the views are truly amazing. The islands of Tiree and Sanday are relatively low but equally picturesque.
