As the autumn weather makes an appearance and the cosy nights begin to roll in, why not book a stay in a unique cottage? Explore Scotland as the leaves start to brown and the air begins to cool. What could possibly be better than that? Here are just some of the activities you could be getting up to if you rent a cottage with us this autumn:
1. Discover Stirling
Avoid the sweaty summer crowds of tourists by visiting Stirling during the autumn months. The city in the heart of Central Scotland is full of character and charm and is a history lovers paradise. Make sure to visit the imposing fortress that is Stirling Castle and enjoy the entertainment provided by costumed performers there.
After a fascinating excursion around Stirling Castle, why not stop off at the National Wallace Monument which commemorates the Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace? Braveheart fans will certainly want to give Stirling a visit! After taking in the fascinating history of the building, climb to the top of the Monument and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the whole city.

2. Explore the Scottish Lochs
As the leaves begin to turn their orange hue, why not visit one of the many Scottish lochs? There are over 31,000 different lochs spread out all across the country that range in size from the largest (Loch Ness) to much smaller ones such as Loch Ard in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, but all of them are beautiful in their own special way.
Drumnadrochit in the Highlands is, of course, home to the famous Loch Ness where the fabled monster that is said to haunt the depths of the water. Loch Muick, pronounced Loch ‘Mick’, in Aberdeenshire is sometimes home to a royal visitor, as it lies within Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral Estate. A trip to one of Scotland’s many stunning lochs makes for a perfect day out in nature.

3. Visit Glasgow
Glasgow has a lot to offer people of all ages. If you are a fan of shopping, history, or nature, Glasgow has got you covered. Nature lovers will want to visit the stunning Botanic Gardens, located in the west end of the city by the River Kelvin. The gardens contain a variety of exotic plant collections from all over the world and the carnivorous plants in particular are quite fascinating!
After a wander around the Botanic Gardens, wind down with a riverside walk or head towards the city centre for an afternoon of indulgent shopping. If that wasn’t enough, Glasgow has 11 fantastic museums ranging from the history of art to the history of religious life with something for everyone to enjoy. A visit to Glasgow is not complete without popping to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (free entry) that houses some fantastic works of art. The ‘Floating Heads’ sculptural art installation is a real highlight and makes for plenty of great photo opportunities.
