Love is in the Air

No Comments, Holiday Cottage News, by Veronica.

40% of all engagements take place between Christmas Eve and Valentine’s Day. In the New Year while brides and grooms turn their attention to the wedding and honeymoon, their friends start planning their stag and hen parties. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway rather than a wild week abroad then Which Cottage has some perfect large holiday houses. Dumcrieff House which sleeps 18 can be taken partly or fully catered or on a self catering basis. There are a host of activities which can be provided on estate grounds by fully qualified instructors. These activities must be booked in advance and include laser quest, kayaking, archery and Mini Highland Games Events. Croquet can set up on the front lawn during the summer months. Alternatively you may wish to just put your feet up and watch a movie, take a gentle walk through the estate grounds, breathe the fresh air and enjoy the privacy, peace and tranquillity. #engaged #engaged2019 #henweekend #stagweekend #scotland #countryliving #countrylife #finedining #croquet #laserquest #kayaking #archery #highlandgames #wedding #brideandgroom #loveisintheair

Self-catering getaway for two. The settlement of Achintraid lies in one of the most beautiful areas of the West Coast Highlands of Scotland less than two hours from Inverness Airport. Three holiday homes nestle on the shore of Loch Kishorn, Ardoch Bothy, Gracie’s Cottage and The Meeting House which is new for 2019. The Meeting House offers cosy open plan accommodation for two with beautiful views in an idyllic setting. From all three properties you can walk for miles and not see anyone else all day, once you get into the hills or out on the coastal paths. No matter what your interests there is something for everyone who is looking for a holiday enjoying the great outdoors. From walking and climbing to sailing and fishing, painting and photography to watching the wildlife. Slightly further afield, take a day trip to the Isle of Skye or the beautiful National Trust gardens at Inverewe. #scotland #highlands #walking #climbing #cycling #sailing #fishing #photography #painting #drawing #selfcatering
