Whether you are looking for an urban getaway or a rural retreat, Scotland has lots of different options when it comes to a last minute cottage holiday. A stay in and around Edinburgh will allow you to explore this wonderful, historic city, with Edinburgh Castle and ‘Old Town’ among its highlights. Scotland’s largest city Glasgow is home to the ‘Style Mile’, a wonderful variety of both independent shops and well-known, big name brands. Having your own country cottage to return to after a day of exploring one of these fantastic cities is simply perfect, as you can relax and prepare dinner just like you would back home.
If you are looking for a more rural adventure, then you should consider staying in one of Scotland’s two National Parks: Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and Cairngorms National Park. Rent a cottage within either of the National Parks and spend your days going on long walks and enjoying the beautiful scenery on offer. Booking last minute will mean that you are venturing into the unknown and there really is no better way to discover the rugged Scottish countryside than to just get out there and explore it for yourself.
Whether you are holidaying with friends or looking to get away for a few days with your family, Scotland is a place that is perfect for a last minute cottage break. Being able to spend all your days and nights together will allow you all to bond more and many accommodations also allow you to bring your pets so no one has to be left at home and you don’t have to worry about any last minute kennels.
