Scotland needs little introduction. Steeped in legend and history, Scotland is a dramatic and rugged destination with a coastline stretching hundreds of miles in and out of many lochs and promontories. Unsurprisingly there is a delightful selection of sea view cottages in Scotland for holidaymakers to enjoy.
Best Cottages by the Sea in Scotland
The Scottish coastline stretches for 10,250 miles around headlands, lochs, estuaries and the rugged shores of its many islands. There are an incredible amount of seascapes and ocean scenes to explore. Most of the coastline is undeveloped but there are pockets of communities and individual cottages by the sea in Scotland where holidaymakers can enjoy the coastal scenery from the comfort of their own self catering holiday lets. When you set your eyes on the wild beaches, deep lochs and tall mountains, you will see why Scotland was voted the most beautiful country in the world by the readers of the Rough Guides travel books.
