Coastal Cottages In Scotland To Rent

With an estimated 8,197 miles of coastline (that’s a whopping 3000% longer than Cornwall!) and 59 prestigious Seaside Awards to its name, Scotland is an underrated treasure trove when it comes to beaches. From the ruined castles of West Sands to the elusive shores of Sandwood Bay, we have coastal cottages in Scotland that’ll wrap you up in the sea-salt-breeze of some of Scotland’s finest coastline. So whether you want a prime-time position right on the seafront, or to be in day-tripping distance to some of the country’s prettiest lochs, our many coastal cottages in Scotland have you covered.

But with so many beaches to choose from, which one is right for you? For wild swimming, you'll want the craggy, gorgeous shores of Applecross, or for some paddle-boarding, kayaking fun, head to Knockvologan, home to its own water sports centre. For a Highland's adventure complete with mountainous backdrop, go for Achnahaird, or - for a more traditional affair - try the grassy plains of Luce Bay. Our coastal cottages in Scotland mean you can open your curtains to turquoise waters and and close them to the tune of glorious sea-side sunsets, and make for a perfect beach break north of the border. Don't just take our word for it, explore Scotland's beaches in one of our coastal cottages for yourself and see what you've been missing.
