Crest of a Wave, Plum Guide home in Oban, Scotland

Click to book Crest Of A Wave now: from £1177.06 per night Whether it's a party or just a big get-together, this huge estate sits grandly overlooking Oban Bay, with enough fun to keep everyone entertained. The striking views over the islands backdrop activities here; from the movie room, by the roaring fireplace, or in one of the huge double bedrooms. Even the games room looks out over the ocean - though with ping pong and pool tables, you should be keeping your eye on the ball. Interiors are wonderfully grand and fit for an occasion; we love making a statement by sweeping down the winding white staircase or rustling up a feast in the huge kitchen. For quieter moments, the patio and outdoor sofa is perfect for soaking up the fresh air - and as the sun sets, move quickly to nab your space in the hot tub.

Good Habits, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Click to book Good Habits now: from £500 per night If you’re fond of the finer things in life, this traditionally-styled apartment with views over Loch Ness is a winner. Set in a Grade A-listed, gorgeously Gothic former monastery, there are high ceilings, big windows and oak panels to marvel at. Period pieces mix with modern luxuries — the underfloor heating in the bathrooms is very welcome during the Scottish winter — to create a refined but relaxed home. We have our eye on the cosy tartan armchair, with possibly the best view in the house. We’re sure you’ll find yourself sitting there, watching the light change over the loch. You’ll be staying on a luxury estate with some fabulous facilities — a swimming pool, sauna, gym, tennis court, archery, croquet and, of course, a giant chessboard. There’s a restaurant on-site, but you’re also just minutes from the centre of the pretty village of Fort Augustus, where you’ll find pubs and restaurants and a local supermarket, as well as a 9-hole golf course and some beautiful walks.
