How to Make Your Holiday Holidays in Scotland Special One
The log cabins Scotland tend to have aren’t much different to all other parts of the UK or Europe, except for the weather, scenery, site exposure and other considerations. This calls for some serious planning and requires good maintenance plans in place. It’s worth thinking about buying a new one from a reputable supplier. You could also buy a used one if you prefer.
When I first came to visit log cabins Scotland, nearly everyone I knew had bought a holiday home there or was looking at building one themselves. But, not many of us were aware that we could buy a new one here in Scotland and take our time improving it. A cottage by the river is a lovely idea and is perfect for a weekend break or longer. Why stay in a small room in the middle of nowhere? There are so many different types of cottages available in Scotland. Here are some ideas to help you get started.
If you want to buy a new log cabin Scotland then you need to know what sort of accommodation options are available. There are plenty of large old age style houses and bungalows, plus new modern cabins and lodges. They’re all well priced. Some of the newer properties will have all the mod cons such as a TV, microwave oven, fridge freezer etc. If you don’t mind looking old fashioned then you should be able to find something very old fashioned.
Some lodges in Scotland have the advantage of being very near to some of the top ski slopes in the world. If you’re an experienced skier then this is ideal as it means you don’t have to travel so far. It’s also possible to book a lodge in highland by email so that you get a sense of how much it would cost to stay at a particular level of accommodation at a particular time of year. So some lodges in Scotland are a good choice for families.
There are a few great examples of old age log cabins in highlands. The Loch Doon is an old style Victorian type building and is one of the most photogenic places in Scotland. It’s located at the very top of a valley and offers fantastic views over the area, including the national park. The log cabin is surrounded by high walls and it has a wonderful view over the valley below. This is a very romantic cabin and many visitors come back just to enjoy the view.
Some of the other very popular old style lodges include the famous Leith Hall which is located near the village of Leith, on the northern peninsula of Scotland. This old style farmhouse has a lot of character and has been put up as a tourist attraction, so that people can pay it a visit. The farmhouse also has a lovely, original dark wooden inner courtyard that is open to visitors.
Other examples of highland lodges include the Eagle Brae farmhouse and station which is on the opposite side of Loch Ness. It’s actually two buildings, which combine into a lovely, cosy log cabin. It has two bedrooms and a loft, it also has a great cosy fireplace and you can see the North Pole from the Eagle Brae. This is a very photogenic area for log cabin holidays in highlands as there are many opportunities to take photographs. You can also visit the nearby Happy Valley where you can walk or cycle to the summit.
Some other popular areas for log cabin holidays in Scotland are the Highlands with its Trossachs and Shetland beaches, the Loch Ness and the Conic hill ranges. If you’re looking for a more remote and wild setting you should try the Isle of Sky. There you’ll find the largest national park in Europe with the loch alighted in the heart of its highland. Here you can explore the loch’s waterfalls, walking tracks and wildlife parks.
