Assynt House

Assynt House, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Assynt House, Plum Guide home in Scotland

Click to book Assynt House now: from £500 per night Describing this Highland mansion as a true Scottish escape doesn't really do it justice, but slide in a few words like 'luxurious', 'opulent', and 'lavish', and you've got a much clearer image. Getting to Assynt House, you'll be travelling through the stunning countryside, allowing your brain to switch off and get ready for something different. There is complimentary daily housekeeping services along with many extra services you can order as an extra bonus. Among the options include full catering, a welcome greeting with the sound of bagpipes, and a local guide who will show you the best this area has to offer. It's not uncommon to see a couple of deer in the morning mist and sheep grazing on the hillside as you explore the castle grounds, but you're more than welcome to stay in and enjoy the restored Georgian features. Sleeps up to 14 | 7 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms

Highland Heart

Highland Heart, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Highland Heart, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Click to book Highland Heart now: from £92 per night Set within a Victorian villa, this Clan Fraser inspired apartment is anything but twee. Instead, the place is fresh and contemporary, with subtle nods of tartan among the swanky finishes. The living space is the heart of the home, with rich blues and brushed gold adding an opulent flourish. There’s a dining table for home-cooked haggis, neeps and tatties and a gorgeous velvet sofa for reclining with a snifter of Scotch. Just when you thought it couldn’t be plusher, 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets dress impossibly comfortable beds. And that’s without mentioning the freestanding copper tub in the first bedroom. Outside, a tidy patio lets you make the most of sunny days – especially when accompanied with treats from the nearby bakery. After a five-minute stroll to the picturesque River Ness, cross the bridge into the heart of Inverness for the red sandstone castle, Victorian Market and an impressive selection of bars and restaurants. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Lochside Hideaway

Lochside Hideaway, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Lochside Hideaway, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Click to book Lochside Hideaway now: from £241 per night A five-minute walk from the shores of Loch Alvie, this traditional Scottish cottage sits within the Cairngorms National Park. Walking trails and towering munros are on your doorstep and the outdoor activity haven of Aviemore is just a five-minute drive away. The exterior of this cottage is as traditional as it gets, with a white-stone facade and slate-grey roof like the crofters’ cottages of old. It gets a little more modern inside with comfy leather sofas and mod-cons in the kitchen, but the brass bedframes, free-standing bathtub and crackling wood-burning in the living room are all about that cottagecore aesthetic. Slide open the glass doors in the dining area and step out onto the secluded back patio where there’s alfresco dining for sunny days and a fire pit for chilly nights. Sleeps up to 7 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

The Daughter of Time

The Daughter of Time, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Click to book The Daughter of Time now: from £96 per night From the outside, this Victorian home looks as quaint as quaint can be, but inside, guests will find an apartment that mixes vintage and modern aspects with considerable dexterity. In the living room, a large bay window floods the space with natural daylight, which dances nicely off the wooden floors and walls painted in muted grey. The Persian rug and deep blue sofa add some bold splashes of colour. Elsewhere, we're big fans of the gleaming copper bathtub in the master bathroom that promises to be as comfortable as it is handsome. Off the same room, there's access to a cute terrace with alfresco seating — yes, it's Scotland, but put on a jumper and enjoy the dramatic sunsets that this corner of the country enjoys. The home's only an eight-minute walk from the River Ness and Inverness's town centre, which includes a castle and an art gallery. Alternatively, if you're feeling more active, Cairngorms National Park takes around half an hour to reach in the car. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Baronial Bliss

Baronial Bliss, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Baronial Bliss, Plum Guide home in Scotland, UK

Click to book Baronial Bliss now: from £7800 per night If you have a special occasion to celebrate or are planning a big get-together, this is the place to do it. Sleeping up to 24 in absolute luxury, this 17th century baronial castle with its pepper-pot roofs, Victorian walled garden and quintessential Highland setting is the stuff of fairy tales. Children will love it here – the 18-acre grounds are like a magical wild playground – though with a Whisky Library brimming with fine single malts (and whisky tutors on call), adults will love it perhaps even more. The dining room is an impressive place for a feast, and the home is staffed with a chef to introduce you to high-end Highland cuisine. Afterwards, play billiards in the games room, find a cosy nook for reading or practice your Highland fling in front of a roaring fire. Outside, the options continue – light a crackling bonfire in private woodland or practice fly fishing at the estate’s lochan, which feeds off the River Don. The house is in good company with Balmoral just eight miles away, and Aberdeenshire's golf courses are some of the best in Scotland. It’s also located within the Cairngorms national park so, depending on the season, could find yourself hiking, kayaking or skiing within five minutes of leaving home. Sleeps up to 24 | 12 Bedrooms | 12 Bathrooms
