Those staying in one of the well-appointed holiday lodges on the west coast of Scotland that Waterside Breaks can offer will certainly have no shortage of fascinating areas to explore, including Dumfries, Galloway, Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Fort William, Lochaber, the West Highlands, Sutherland, the Western Isles, Ayrshire, Arran, Argyll and Bute.

Why not, for example, take in the town of Dumfries itself, with its large statue of the popular poet Robert Burns, who spent some of his adult life here? Indeed, lovers of literature will be especially excited to visit Wigtown around the coast of Wigtown Bay, its high number of book shops having earned it the nickname ‘Booktown’.

Meanwhile, those seeking spectacular scenery during their log cabin holidays in Scotland just can’t beat the ruggedness of the Mallaig, Isle of Skye and Kyle of Lochalsh areas, also featuring such visitor attractions as Eilean Donan castle. There’s nothing quite like the long drives along the winding coastal roads of this part of Scotland, with its assortment of unspoilt beaches and low-key villages.
