Scotland Winter

In December your “to do” list can quickly fill up with buying presents, organising parties and making costumes for children’s Christmas plays. Imagine taking a break from December’s hustle and bustle to enjoy spending quality time with your loved ones on a Scottish Christmas break.

The holiday season might be right around the corner but it’s not too late to make this Christmas memorable by treating your family to one of LHH Scotland’s top Christmas cottages for a holiday they’ll remember for years to come.


Peninsula Cottage

Peninsula Cottage

When your family thinks back to their Christmas in Peninsula Cottage they’ll remember waking up to panoramic views of the Stornoway coastline on Christmas Eve, cuddling up in front of a real flame fire on Christmas Day and celebrating Boxing Day in style in the hot tub.

From the moment you arrive, it’ll be easy to see why Visit Scotland has awarded this unmissable Christmas holiday cottage with 5 stars. During the day you can explore the local area by taking a leisurely bike ride along the beach on the cottage’s complimentary bikes or, take a 10 minute drive into the picturesque harbour town of Stornoway.


Riof Ocean Cottage

Riof Ocean Cottage

Can’t imagine spending Christmas away from your beloved family dog? Why leave your family’s best friend behind when they’ll be in their element exploring the dramatic Hebridean landscape at Riof Ocean Cottage, awarded 4 stars by Visit Scotland!

The dog friendly Christmas cottage is just 5 minutes from Riof beach, one of the most scenic beaches in all of Scotland. Work up an appetite by wrapping-up warm and taking your pet on a relaxing stroll along this white sandy beach to experience the Isle of Lewis’s dramatic coastline before settling down for Christmas dinner once the sun sets over the surrounding Uig Hills.

While you’re at Riof Ocean Cottage, why not make the most of your stay by treating your family to a sailing trip or, visiting the nearby Miavaig Harbour to sample freshly caught seafood?


Mosspeeble Cottage

Mosspeeble Cottage

What could be more Christmassy than gathering your family around a real wood burning stove to drink hot chocolate and reminisce about Christmases gone by? At Mosspeeble Cottage you can spend your days exploring the surrounding tranquil countryside then warm up in front of the wood burning stove at night.

This cosy farm cottage is the perfect Scottish retreat for those who want to get away from it all this Christmas and unwind in the peaceful countryside. Make sure you try out the cottage’s hot tub for the ultimate relaxing evening.

If you’re feeling adventurous, there is variety of fun activities in the surrounding area. Why not spend a frosty, bright morning pony trekking across a picturesque horse riding hack or, hill walking in the dramatic hill ranges that the Scottish Borders are famous for.


Otter Cottage

 Otter Cottage

Discover Otter Cottage, your haven from the busy Christmas period this December! During your stay at this beach front cottage you’ll feel a million miles away from everyday stresses. Relax with a walk along the white sands at Scarista beach or, enjoy a leisurely round of golf using your complementary free access pass at the nearby Harris Golf Course.

Don’t miss out on your opportunity to explore the nearby islands of North Uist, South Uist, and Barra, all just a short ferry trip away from your Christmas cottage.
