Where The Stravaigers Go

Where The Stravaigers Go, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Click to book Where The Stravaigers Go now: from £200 per night Escape to this Scottish country lodge, built just for two, resting on the edge of the Balcarres Estate, yet just 15 minutes from the seaside town of St Andrews. Designed in the late 1800s by Scottish architect, Sir Robert Lorimer, this home has been lovingly restored into a stylish retreat where colour and craftsmanship make an impressive double act. Climb the stairs to the top floor and you’ll find the cosy bedroom quarters, complete with an incredible free-standing copper bath – best enjoyed by candlelight with a glass of something chilled. But don’t worry if you haven’t the time for soaking – there’s a walk-in waterfall shower next door too. Back downstairs, you’ll find an immaculately presented living space with a wood-burning stove at the heart. Step outside into the beautiful garden which wraps around the home and enjoy stunning views of the countryside, with woodland paths leading you directly through Balcarres Estate and into some of Scotland’s finest countryside. Walk through ancient forests, cross rolling hills with dramatic views across the Firth of Forth, or stravaig along the two miles of pristine beachfront at Largo Bay. And for somewhere that feels this secluded, you’re just an hour’s drive from Edinburgh and less than 15 minutes drive from the medieval town of St Andrews, with its castle and cathedral ruins. How’s that for the best of both worlds. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

I Spy

I Spy, Plum Guide home in Inverness

Click to book I Spy now: from £200 per night You can't get much closer to Loch Ness than this. 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

Pink Pineapple

Pink Pineapple, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Click to book Pink Pineapple now: from £100 per night Stepping into this colourful home, you’ll quickly find a cosy space to hang out in, with sumptuous velvet sofas and a warming wood-burning stove. 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. What’s more, the Scottish border is just a few miles away, so you can even hop across to Scotland for the day. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Crest Of A Wave

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

Golf Among Lavender

Golf Among Lavender, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Golf Among Lavender, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Click to book Golf Among Lavender now: from £1309 per night This home uniquely contrasts the old and new, combining a 200-year-old Gardeners Cottage with a mid-century modern house built in the 1960s by the Scottish architect Sir James Dunbar-Nasmith. The front façade gears you up for countryside chic. However, the view from the vibrant walled garden is decidedly different – geometric shapes reign supreme. The interior is similarly surprising. Recently renovated, it blends up-to-date stylish features with antique furniture, oil paintings and even a Bluthner Leipzig baby grand piano. The majority of the accommodation is located across the ground floor and there are a variety of rooms suitable for entertaining many guests, ranging from a formal dining room to a cosy TV room and drawing-room. Guests have easy access to the landscaped garden; however, it’s not just the sweet-smelling lavender that should draw you outside. Practice your golf skills on a private two-hole pitching range before visiting the nearby world-famous golf courses, Muirfield, Gullane and North Berwick. Sleeps up to 12 | 6 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms
