Remote Holiday Cottages - Get away from it all...

If you are looking for that true wilderness, get away from it all, experience, we have a selection of properties that fit the bill. Some are more accessible than other so please choose carefully, especially if you wish to visit during winter months, but each is guaranteed to offer a magical holiday experience - as close as you can get to a wilderness holiday in the UK.

Just because these properties feel remote it doesn't mean you have to do without your creature comforts. All are exceptionally well appointed and some offer wood burning stoves or open fires for those cosy evenings. For those that don't want to lose connection from the outside world, WiFi is available in some cottages, although mobile phone connections can be poor in some of the properties - please check the descriptions or ask us for advice if this is important to you.

Many of these holiday cottages are ideally suited to hillwalkers wishing to explore some of the less easy to get to Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft) and are a great base from which to expand your tick list!

Some of the properties below give the feeling of remoteness while still being relatively easy to get to, so if your not ready for a full on "back to the wild" experience then these may be a better choice for your Scottish holiday.
