Self Catering Short Breaks Highlands
When you need to impress or simply fancy a wee treat, get searching on Gael Holiday Homes for the perfect holiday that doesn’t need to break the bank. We have a fantastic choice of locations for that quick weekend break you have dreamt about but never quite got round to booking.
Seize the day and check out our city centre breaks in Inverness, the capital of the Highlands of Scotland. Inverness is a young, vibrant city with a lot to offer. For short city breaks there is a dazzling choice of accommodation bookable on a nightly basis. The minimum stay is two nights, which is just what you want when you’ve got to get back to work or other commitments on a Monday. Inverness is a great city break destination, jam packed with restaurants, pubs and interesting bistros which serve a mouth-watering array of dishes using the finest local ingredients. There are also numerous pubs and bars in which to soak up the local atmosphere and enjoy a beer or whisky while watching the world go by. The city of Inverness is also a great base from which to explore the rest of the Highlands, and there are a host of brilliant day outs right on the doorstep that lets you sample some truly stunning scenery. And no short break holiday would be complete without a visit to the mysterious and brooding waters of Loch Ness wherein lurks, allegedly, the loch’s famous monster, Nessie.
For a longer short break or cheap holiday, you may prefer to get out of the bustle (relatively speaking) of Inverness, and head out into the countryside. Gael Holiday Homes has selected truly top notch accommodation for a holiday in the Highlands. From secluded cottages to the frontier feel of all mod cons log cabins, there is a comprehensive choice of places to stay to make that special break even more special. And that’s before you take into account an array of well appointed houses that have been hand picked for you.
Outside Inverness, the short break holiday property is leased on a minimum three night basis. But this is no hardship. There’s just so much to take in – the dramatic scenery, the peace and tranquillity, the slower pace of life. When the time comes to head home you will leave wanting more.
