Get away from it all to this charming wooden hideaway in the Heights of Achterneed, The Highlands. This romantic cabin is perfect for a couple looking for a Scottish adventure with their four-legged friend but is open to unwinding in the lovely wood-fired hot tub at the end of the day.
Kick off your walking boots on the front porch and enter the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Warm toes (and paws) in front of the toasty wood burner and unwind on the pillowy sofa with a comedy streaming on the Smart TV. The sleek units and high-quality appliances make culinary creations a breeze, while the charming table offers an idyllic space from which to enjoy your tea for two. At the end of a busy day, immerse yourselves in the wood-fired hot tub to soothe away any aches, or enjoy a post-dinner drink here with the gorgeous woodland and garden views. When it's time for bed, say goodnight to your faithful friend and head to the double bedroom to find a tranquil space with many colourful nods to its traditional Scottish heritage. In the morning, let your happy hound roam free in the enclosed garden while you sip your cup of tea and dive into a few pages of your book.
You are well served with walking routes, incredible vistas and architectural beauty with a stay at this cottage. Head into Strathpeffer (1.5 miles), a Victorian spa town, to pick up some Dundee cake or homemade haggis, watch a concert, or play at the beautifully restored pavilion in its stunning centre. Thrill seekers will be itching to conquer the region's highest mountain, Ben Wyvis (16.5 miles), while those who prefer slightly flatter routes can take on the Knockfarrel Ridge trail, which takes you on a 4-mile circular route through a stone labyrinth.
