As an island nation, surrounded by seas and ocean, it comes as no surprise that many people are drawn to our beautiful coastline. Coast was a fantastic TV series, depicting our seaboard in all its glory, and I never tire of watching it. Some of our most dramatic coastline can be found in Scotland. Here we have a wonderful collection of Scottish holiday cottages by the sea.
I have selected cottages across Scotland, all within walking distance of the beach. So, chances are that from your Scottish holiday cottage by the sea you will hear the soft sound of the waves lapping on the shore.
When it comes to stunning coastal scenery, it is hard to beat Scotland. The cottages I have chosen stretch from the dramatic Highlands and islands to the beautiful south west as well as the oft-forgotten yet just as stunning east coast. If you are taken by the idea of exploring the coastline of Scotland cottages by the sea are the perfect places to stay.
Many of these Scottish cottages have views out over the sea, allowing you to sit and watch the changing light and weather from the comfort of your own holiday home. It is an inspiring sight - even on rainy days - observing the great Scottish coast, with its beautiful beaches, lofty cliffs and mountains falling down to the sea. The views from your window will make every moment of your stay a pleasure, and there's no substitute for the relaxation and comfort of staying in your very own cottage by the sea.
Venture out and take in the sea air; from the doorstep of your holiday cottage you can enjoy bracing walks on the beach or over a headland. Looking out to sea you may get the chance to see some dolphins or even whales. Closer to hand you may come across nesting seabirds such as guillemots, kittiwakes and puffins, or raptors soaring high up.
