It may appear selfish to want your own space, your own private venue for celebrating a special occassion or enjoying a few days in total seclusion with the freedom to east, sleep and explore the countryside at their own pace - but luxury self-catering is becoming a very popular option for visitors to Scotland who want to enjoy their own luxury holiday lodge or cottage and feel at home the minute they step through the door.
The option of wining and dining in a style and at a time that suits you and your guests is a wonderful freedom. Many of the luxury lodges, cottages and castles in Scotland are owned and operated by some of the best hotels and luxury accommodation providers in Scotland. And, with the personal services of activity providers, local travel guides and a host of transport options now available throughout Scotland, this brings a whole new dimension to luxury self catering
Within the Luxury Scotland members there are many 'luxury self-catering' options ranging from castles, lodges, cottages and city centre exlusive apartments Our first stop for the best holiday rentals in Scotland is The Torridon, an impressive chateau-style hotel located in a secluded Highlands lochside setting in Wester Ross. The Torridon Hotel in Scotland is offering a luxury boathouse for holiday rentals which is proving extremely popular with lots of repeat business. Luxury holiday rentals in Scotland don’t get much better than this.
The two-bedroom boathouse at Torridon is idyllically situated overlooking and adjacent to Loch Ewe, backing onto woodland. It’s spacious, tastefully furnished, has an all-glass bay-fronted extension to the lounge, and is just feet from the loch where otters and heron might be spotted.
The Torridon is a special place to stay in Scotland, particularly for anyone wanting an activities-packed holiday (the Torridon is one of the best multi-activity providers in Scotland), while the Boathouse will be bliss for anyone wanting a secluded hideaway in which to chill out. Don’t keep yourself to yourself too much should you stay in the Boathouse, there’s a lot to discover with more than 350 malt whiskies in the hotel’s Whisky Bar for starters. Dining in the hotel’s restaurant is a “must” and for casual eating out pop into the Torridon Inn on the estate, just a few minutes’ walk.
Drive 135 miles south from The Torridon and you arrive at The Airds Hotel & Restaurant in the pretty West Coast Highlands hamlet of Port Appin, near Oban.
