Searching for the best lodge breaks in Scotland?

With the wilderness of the Highlands, stunning mountains, peaceful lochs, and a dramatic coastline, Scotland has it all. If you are after a bit of peace and quiet, and a rustic and rural feel, then the Highlands are one of the best places in Britain to vacation. Scotland also benefits from numerous, inexpensive self-catering cottages, from small homesteads to warm timber lodges. Here's a look at some of the best Lodge breaks in Scotland.

The Balintore Inn offers a cozy and traditional welcome right on the edge of Balintore Harbour. This property offers 3 unique drinking spots on site, as well as a variety of self-catering apartments, houses and cottages. In close proximity to the very best in highland hunting, loch fishing, walking, mountain biking and kayaking, this is a great option for the more active or adventurous. Close to shops and amenities, and a short drive from famous distilleries such as the one at Glenmorangie, this really is amongst the best lodge holidays on offer. Stays at George's Lighthouse self-catering lodge, with sea views and 4 bedrooms, start from as little as £650 per week in the off season. Summer stays, meanwhile, are priced at £1350.

In the Lowlands of Scotland, the Orroway Estate in Dumfries and Galloway offers a range of self-catering lodges within touching distance of the sea. With game hunting, a fishing pond, a private beach as well as hill walking, there is a lot to keep you occupied. The grand Orroland Lodge, perched high above the cliffs, sleeps fourteen and costs from as little as £1890 for a week, a good price when fully occupied.

So there are options aplenty for lodge breaks in Scotland, from Highland to Lowland, East to West.
