From its tranquil hill-top setting, Greenhill Cottage offers the perfect vantage point to soak up the beauty and peace of the Scottish Highlands in cosy warmth and comfort of this beautifully converted property.

With authentic exposed stone brickwork throughout and roaring log burner the open plan living area offers the perfect place to warm your feet as you sip a whisky and unwind.  Under floor heating throughout the ground floor leads to a dining area and well-equipped kitchen with Nespresso coffee machine and dishwasher.  On warmer days why not stoke up the BBQ and enjoy some al fresco dining whilst taking in the tranquil beauty of the glen.

The cottage offers three superking bedrooms (one on the ground floor, two upstairs) with crisp white linens and feather bedding all with en-suites complete with dressing robes and complimentary toiletries.  The ground floor bedroom has a picture window that offers a particularly beautiful view of the glen that you can enjoy from your morning coffee and lie-in.

Nothing quite beats the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, and Greenhill Cottage is the idyllic base to explore the surrounding walks, enjoy a round of golf on the spectacular courses or even try your hand at fishing in the breath-taking beauty of the nearby Loch Glass.  With bustling Inverness just half an hour away, historic castles aplenty and the temptation for a bit of monster spotting at Loch Ness, you and your guests will be in the perfect vantage point to enjoy Scotland at its best.

Greenhill Cottage offers the perfect haven of calm sat on a gentle hilltop overlooking the spectacular Scottish mountains yet is perfectly located just twenty-five minutes from Inverness airport and within five miles of major roads leading to the North Coast 500.  

Behind the cottage is the glorious Ben Wyvis where keen hikers can take the 6.5km climb through forest and unique upland habitats to the expansive mossy summit likened to stepping onto a deep pile-carpet, it is the UK’s largest area of woolly hair-moss.

For a gentler day, why not enjoy a paddle at the local pebble beach in Evanton where you can amble through the forestry tracks in the community woodland and marvel at the glistening loch.  If you’re searching for sand then we recommend a day trip to the nearby sandy beaches of Dornoch and Rosemarkie, enjoy a warming hot chocolate at the Rosemarkie Beach Café then take a trip to the Groam House Museum where you can discover a wealth of Celtic and Pictish art.

Golfers will be spoilt for choice with a plethora of links courses varying from the historic Fortrose and Rosemarkie, the 15th Oldest Club in the World to the internationally acclaimed championship course at Royal Dornach.

Just a thirty-minute drive will take you to Cromarty where you can climb onboard a RIB boat with Ecoadventures to discover the resident colony of bottlenose dolphins at Moray Firth, a truly magical experience for all the family.  Whilst grown-ups won’t want to miss out on a visit to the local whisky distilleries Glenmorangie and Balblair where it would be remiss not to take advantage of sampling some of Scotland’s finest amber spirit.

No trip would be complete without a visit to the world famous Loch Ness for some Nessie spotting, with boat rides, watersports and local exhibition centre there is something for all the family at this famous beauty spot less than half an hour’s drive away.

Scotland’s vast and inspiring history can be found all around you with a range of historic sites to visit from the French-chateau inspired Dunrobin Castle, dating back to the 1300s, Culloden Battlefield, the site of the bloody last battle of the Jacobite Rising and the Castle of Mey renovated by HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother herself!

Luxury self-catering holiday accommodation in the Highlands

Get ready to embark on a whimsical journey to the Scottish Highlands with Oliver's Travels, where fabulous, characterful homes await in this rugged and enchanting slice of northern Scotland. Mist-shrouded mountains, deep-blue lochs and ancient castles are the name of the game. It is like stepping into a fantasy novel, but with fewer dragons and more kilts!

First up on our Highland hit-list is Ben Nevis, standing at a whopping 1,345 metres. Climbers and hikers worldwide flock to its trails, ready to conquer the mountain and be rewarded with the most incredible views. If you are not up for an epic uphill battle, fear not! The Great Glen Way offers a more chilled stroll along the Caledonian Canal, connecting Fort William and Inverness. It is like a leisurely stroll through nature, with bonus canal vibes.

Now, who hasn't heard of Loch Ness? Home to historic castles such as Urquhart Castle, this legendary spot invites you to channel your inner detective and search for Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. Nessie might be shy, but the views are anything but! You will enjoy ruins, mystery and just maybe, a friendly monster waving from the depths.

Inverness, the unofficial Highland capital, is where historic charm meets modern pizzazz. The River Ness weaves through the city, tickling the feet of Victorian buildings. It is a sophisticated dance of old and new. You can stroll along the riverbanks, explore Inverness Castle and soak up the local vibes at the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. Heading west is the hidden treasure of Plockton which boasts landscapes so picturesque, you will think you are in a watercolour painting. Whitewashed cottages add a touch of charm and the sheltered bay is the perfect spot for daydreaming. You can take a boat trip to nearby islands or just bask in the coastal serenity. In Fort Augustus, where the Caledonian Canal plays meet and greet with Loch Ness, boating and water-based antics abound. The locks of Fort Augustus are like a watery staircase, a fascinating engineering marvel that turns boat journeys into a spectacle.

The Highland Folk Museum near Newtonmore invites you to step back in time. This living history museum spills the secrets with reconstructed buildings, costumed interpreters and demonstrations of age-old crafts. Another wonder, Eilean Donan Castle is a real-life fairytale fortress perched on a tiny island where three lochs have a meet-up. It is so postcard-perfect that even Hollywood could not resist its charm. History buffs and Instagram enthusiasts, this one is for you!

Of course, we cannot forget the whisky. The Highlands are the holy grail for whisky aficionados. Glenlivet and Glenfiddich distilleries open their doors for guided tours, where you will learn the magic behind crafting Scotch whisky. Sip, swirl and savour – it is a Highland happy hour!

Whether you are scaling castles, conquering peaks, fishing, boating or just lounging by a loch, the Scottish Highlands invites you to a land where nature and history come together in a brilliant way. It is a timeless tale that leaves you in awe. Step into the magic as adventure awaits!

Ah, bonnie Scotland! A wild and beautiful part of the world, where you can explore the rugged highlands or enjoy the colour and vibrancy of cultural capitals like Edinburgh and Glasgow.

But how do you know you’re getting the very best out of your trip? That’s where we come in. If you’ve had a browse through our range of luxury cottages and castles in Scotland, you’ll know there’s some great places to stay, but to find all the great things to do, see and eat you’ll need our handy Scotland travel guide  – so read on and enjoy!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids

Cosy beds, an abundance of outdoor space and a Smart TV and Bluetooth radio means Greenhill Cottage is the perfect spot for families looking for an idyllic way to enjoy the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands.

A must for families is the formidable Fyrish Monument, just outside Evanton, a great place to take a picnic and enjoy the spectacular views.  Harry Potter fans will want to visit Black Rock Gorge, used as a location in the film and with a lovely natural playpark to keep the kids busy.

No trip to Scotland would be complete without a trip to Loch Ness.  Take a Jacobite Cruise on the loch itself and try and spot the famous Loch Ness Monster.  Don’t forget to visit the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre afterwards with a gift shop stocked full of Nessie story books and stuffed toys.  Older children will not be disappointed with endless opportunities to enjoy the water from canoes, kayaks, cycle routes and boat hire.

Why not catch a ride on the Ness Islands Railway (for children aged four and over) which offers three scenic mini train rides running half a mile of scenic routes through the beautiful Whin Park.
