    Looking for a last minute break - cottage - Scotland or North England - anything?

    I missed out on a family holiday due to my mother going into hospital and am hoping to do something at short notice.

    If anyone knows of anything that is available for 5 people (2 and 3kids) ideally a dog, but will rehome for the week if not

    open to options anywhere
    prefer self catering

    any known ideas let me know!

    (already been on AirBnB,, Hotel,com, booking,com,, etc etc!! don't need any more pictures of places i can't book because they are booked or need 7 days min!)

    Pondfauld Holidays near Blairgowrie any good? Nice wee cottages available just outside the town. Plenty of fishing available, and you're within easy reach of Braemar, Ballater, Pitlochry, etc. OH's brother and kids have just spent a few days there. I can recommend it if you're just after a quiet wee base for a few days

    We stayed in Kyle cottage a few years ago. It sleeps 4 but I'm sure they could do a deal including 2 bed next door if not occupied. Lovely place and surroundings. Pets welcome.

    Have a look at Iain and Lynne's place, Invercoe Highland Holidays in Invercoe at the bottom of Glencoe. They have a good mix of accommodation and might have something going.

    thanks for all the suggestions
    i decided to camp on a beach well known to me in Mull....

    possibly the wettest week I have ever seen in over 40 years of going

    literally and metaphorically speaking!

    We were camping next to the rocks ...
    Burn burst its banks and ran across the field past the tents!
