Large Holiday Homes Scotland

Something special lives inside the Scottish borders. A quiet, mist-covered charm that you won’t find anywhere else. One look at Scotland’s stunning views and it’s easy to see why it was voted the most beautiful country in the world a few years ago. From the gentle sparkle that dances over the top of Loch Ness, to the whispering wind that blows across Ben Nevis, Britain’s most northerly nation is home to a Celtic magic that makes every holiday in Scotland unique and unforgettable.

It’s an experience that doesn’t sound like it could get any better. That is, of course, until we tell you where you could be staying. Forget about poky hotel rooms and low-ceiling rentals, large holiday homes and big holiday cottages in Scotland are how this country is meant to be experienced. Our selection of plus-sized holiday homes and group accommodation in Scotland gives you all the space and amenities to make your getaway perfect, inside and out.

Get ready to enter a world of luxury with everything from spacious accommodation and mansions, to luxurious farmhouses and large houses with back-garden golf courses to underground swimming pools. But most importantly, enough space to let you breathe. Whether it’s a family occasion for a landmark birthday, a large group holiday with family and friends or a corporate event to treat your employees, big houses in Scotland are an excellent excuse for any celebration in a very special property.

There’s no limit on what big cottages can provide

The best thing about big cottages is there’s no limit on how they can be used. Whenever and why-ever you’re renting, our expansive selection of large holiday homes and gorgeous group accommodation is here for you. Whether you’re looking to house a big group of friends, the entire office or just you and your thoughts, we’ve got the space for you.

Our Scotland cottages have catered for weddings, family gatherings, summer holiday escapes and every other special occasion under the sun. We know our stuff when it comes to everything from wonderfully wild party houses to spacious accommodation and family-friendly holiday homes. Most importantly, we put our heart into each and every one.

Best of all, with so much space, there’s no limit on the luxury amenities your holiday property can include. Whether you’re craving a swimming pool, table tennis table in the games room, tennis court, hot tub or children's play area, we’ve got you covered with our very special property portfolio.

Don’t want to leave your four-legged friends behind? Ask about our pet-friendly large holiday houses. Want to make things a little extra cosy? How about staying in a rustic farmhouse with a roaring log fire? We even have huge holiday homes catering for outdoor pursuits like fishing, horse riding and golf.

Whatever you’re craving, Scotland holidays have got you covered

As you may have guessed, here at Big Cottages, we’re big fans of Scotland. One of the things we love most about the northern nation is how much it has to offer. Scotland is home to hundreds of different getaways, from honeymoons and family reunions to hen parties and solo escapes.

If you’re looking to grab hold of your special someone and leave the rest of the world behind, then head to the Highlands. Rough, wild and brimming with natural beauty, it’s a place where stunning castles and incredible legends lurk amongst thick trees.

For culture, class and hundreds of award-winning restaurants, there’s no better place to be than Edinburgh. Or if you're travelling with the little ones, Dumfries and Galloway is ideal for families. Nestled in the South West of Scotland the area is awash with adventure parks, activity centre and a chocolate factory to craft your own delicious creations.

Our guide UK pilgrimage routes you can walk on your next holiday includes a walking route that passes through Scotland.
