Natural Retreats and Scottish Canals are excited to announce a new partnership that will see Natural Retreats take over full operational responsibility for Canalside Cottages, a contemporary and unique collection of holiday properties that include bothies and restored lock keeper and canal worker’s cottages located on the banks of Scotland’s canals.
These historically significant buildings were beautifully restored by Scottish Canals to create luxury retreats in stunning waterside locations across Scotland and hundreds of people every year choose to holiday in this unique self-catering accommodation.
Katie Hughes, Director of Estates at Scottish Canals, said: “We’re very excited about this partnership with Natural Retreats as Canalside Cottages have proved hugely popular with people looking for memorable holiday accommodation in breath-taking locations and we are confident they will attract a whole new audience keen to sample all that Scotland’s canals have to offer.”
The partnership will see Natural Retreats take over full operational responsibility for maintaining and marketing the portfolio of Canalside Cottages which includes properties in locations along Scottish canals from Fort William to Inverness. This addition to Natural Retreats’ portfolio increases the company’s presence in Scotland with luxury self-catering accommodation at The Inn at John O’Groats and Lews Castle on the Isle of Lewis. The company has an international reputation for providing high-end luxury holiday experiences in some of the most stunning locations.
