Scotland's history like most of the British Isles is peppered with battles against unwelcome invaders from the Norse Men from Scandinavia, the Romans and more recently, the Scots would argue, with good reason perhaps, the English. However it is exactly this marvellous rebellious history that makes Scotland holiday cottages such a great way to see this rugged, beautiful country that blends wild natural beauty with scars of its turbulent past and some beautiful contemporary architecture. Sites of interest such as Hadrian's Wall built by the Romans to keep the locals at bay, Edinburgh Castle or the simple drive across the Skye Bridge, just west of Kyle of Lochalsh, are wonderful examples of Scottish character and determination and pride.
