Reasons I love Scotland number 376. You can be in the middle of a cosmopolitan city like Edinburgh and drive 30 minutes, and be in a truly remote, beautiful countryside location. Set within the rolling Pentland hills of Scotland, the Eastside Holiday Cottages are at the centre of Eastside Farm - a working sheep farm. They have been lovingly converted from the original 18th Century farmstead and are surrounded by the hills. There are 4 unique properties on the site, but I think I’d go for the Westside Woodshed, because of the outdoor wood-fired hot tub. This is a perfect place to station yourself if you want the joy of a holiday set amongst nature – with superb walks on your doorstep, but wouldn’t mind having a day or night trip into beautiful Edinburgh to enjoy everything this cool, cultured city has to offer. You don’t need to decide between museums or moorland – you can have both!
