Cottages with Log Fires

Relax by a real fire

Cottages with Log Fires

Not many of us enjoy the authentic, crackling cosiness of a real fireside at home these days.  The magical and mesmerising flames, the penetrating and bone-thawing warmth, the lazy embers for toasting marshmallows.  But stay in a Scottish holiday home with a real fire and it could all be yours, at least for a few days.

There are cosy, welcoming cottages all over Scotland: nestled in the villages of the Scottish Borders, down isolated rough tracks in Highlands, or with spectacular views of the islands of Argyll.  And having a real log fire or wood-burning stove can make it that little bit special.  Whether it’s to warm your toes after a day in the hills, or simply to snuggle up beside with a good book while rain lashes the windows, Scottish self-catering accommodation with a real fire has to be a good idea!
