Cottages & Castles

Cottages & Castles is Scotland’s answer to high quality, beautifully located, self-catering accommodation. We are extremely proud of the different array of holiday homes we have to offer and are excited to be able to say that many of them sit along the route of the North Coast 500.


If driving this route, a lot of you will want to move on after one stop. But we know that for many of you that won’t have been enough, and you will want to come back and explore, in depth, a particular area that touched your heart. Some of you may also want to take it a little slower and stay a few nights in each place, there is no right way to it! But we can certainly help you when it comes to looking for comfortable accommodation.

Why not take a look at our cosy cottages, family houses, traditional lodges and even splendid castles that we have splashed around this brilliant route. All are set in beautiful locations which will simply take your breath away. These holiday homes are an ideal option for families looking to enjoy the wilderness, or couples seeking that much needed space and tranquillity, or even groups of friends looking for a wonderful adventure together. Discover holiday homes which are perfectly situated for hill walking, cycling, water sports, birdwatching, relaxing and just general adventuring! Most welcome the dog too!

Make sure you check out some of our shining stars – The ‘Estate Office House’ in Applecross being one of them. Set right on the shoreline, the house lets you enjoy the stunning sandy beach day in and day out. You are surrounded by awesome views across the bay and you are right next to the famous ‘Bealach Na Ba’ which, when you get to the top, offers some of the most incredible mountainous/sea views you will ever see. This is not an area you want to skim over!

Our holiday homes offer that base to not only explore the route but the many different areas you are introduced to on your journey around the rugged north of Scotland. They can promise you a cosy restful place to lay your head at night, a comfy couch to chill out on after a full day out, and a private space for you and your group to enjoy.

Whether you are looking for a short break or a week long break we will find something to suit you. Our sales team have a great knowledge of Scotland and will be able to answer any questions you may have so just give them a call on 01738 451 610. You can also see a full list of our NC500 houses here:
