The girlfriend and I are looking to go to Scotland for our Oct hol. We are taking the kids to Florida in August so looking for a bit of an "adventure" holiday for us

We are looking for a base that is self catering but not too far out as we stayed in Fort Augustus last year which was lovely but 20+ miles to the nearest supermarket was a bit too far away

We are looking for something where we can go surfing and mountain walking and if its within a 30min journey for either one would be fine.

Anyone recommend anywhere? I'm currently working in Aberdeen and asked the guys here and they just looked at me with blank faces! Think its the langauge barrier they don't have a clue what I say
