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.
Homestone Farmhouse is a large and traditional, stone-built farmhouse, on a 250-acre working farm, in an idyllic, secluded rural location, 5 miles from Campbeltown, on the Kintyre Peninsula. This child friendly farmhouse in Scotland sleeps 11 in 5 bedrooms. Pets welcome.
Kintillo is a traditional detached coastal property which rises from the fields of Holmisdale in a secluded rural corner of the Isle of Skye. The pet-friendly property sits on a hillside and boasts uninterrupted views of the countryside and is well placed for exploration of this mystical isle.

A remote Scottish holiday cottage found on the Trotternish Peninsula in the far north of the Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides, Ridge End Cottage in the isolated township of Conista promises a memorable holiday for groups of up to six looking to relax in cosy and comfortable rural accommodation.
This pet-friendly coastal getaway near Campbeltown offers room for eight with excellent amenities. Featuring four bedrooms, this large and accessible farmhouse makes the most of its location on the Kintyre peninsula, providing spectacular rural views and easy access to many attractions.
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.
