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

Click to book Crest Of A Wave now: from £1177 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. Sleeps up to 22 | 11 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms

This unique place to stay also has a host of interesting decorations, such as lizard-shaped door handles, a golden monkey statuette, and vintage books. You’ll be staying within the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, where you can spend time weaving along cobbled streets and admiring historic buildings. The town is situated on the River Tweed and within easy reach of the coast, meaning there’s plenty of opportunity to go for walks along the beach and explore the countryside.

A cosy two-bedroom cottage, this home has beautiful views of the lake, and you're even provided with a telescope to get a better view of the wildlife (and maybe another famous inhabitant). You'll feel at home as soon as you arrive – the interiors have been designed by Scottish furnishings maker ANTA, and classic tartan prints adorn the homeware and bedding. Spend your mornings in the garden listening to the birdsong before heading out to explore your surroundings. There are plenty of Highland hikes in the area, and if you're wanting to get a closer look at the lake, try a cruise – there's a jetty just a short walk away from this home. On colder days, curl up on the leather sofa in the living room in front of the fire, or settle back in an armchair with a book. You'll find everything you need in the kitchen to cook a warming meal, including an oven and grill, dining by the window with a view of the lake. When the sun sets, this home becomes the perfect place for a spot of stargazing. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
