With its heather-topped hills, peaceful lochs, rugged coastlines, pristine sandy beaches and fascinating wildlife, Scotland is home to some of the UK’s most captivating landscapes. Its dramatic, varied terrain lends itself to holidays spent hiking in the hills, fishing along the River Tweed, wild swimming in chilly lochs and long rambling walks through stunning countryside before returning to your holiday cottage to relax or cosy up next to the fire.
Steeped in legend and history, there are also plenty of fascinating sights, cities, towns and villages to explore. Discover historic Scottish landmarks such as The Hermitage and Melrose Abbey and cultural treasures including Abbotsford, the ancestral home of author Sir Walter Scott. Or, if you fancy going for a trip further afield, wander the ancient streets of Edinburgh meandering up the Royal Mile before marvelling at the imposing sight of Edinburgh Castle.
If a gastronomic trip is more your style, tuck into local delicacies such as oysters, oak-smoked salmon and delicious game – there is an abundance of fantastic restaurants all over Scotland including fantastic seafood restaurants, Michelin-starred gastro pubs, stylish in-town eateries and hidden local gems.
Our unique holiday homes and holiday cottages can be found in locations across the Scottish Borders, East Lothian and Midlothian. So, whether you fancy exploring the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, the North Sea Coastline with its picturesque beaches of Saint Abb's Cove or the dramatic peaks of The Pentland Hills you’ll find your Scottish home away from home with Crabtree & Crabtree.
