Holiday Cottages in Scotland for Hillwalkers

Scotland, a land with dramatic landscapes strewn with mountains, valleys, moors, lochs and glens, boasts of some of the finest walks in the world. The best part is that most of these are easily accessible, but don't forget to be appropriately dressed and equipped for any walk - the weather in Scotland can be very changeable!
