Conservatories come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they represent a golden opportunity to create a little slice of paradise in your own home. Here are some of the very best to be found in Scotland.

All conservatories offer plenty of light, of course, but when they are able to boast a stunning view as well then so much the better. Time spent here can be just about as relaxing as it gets.

Some conservatories are blissfully chaotic and some are supremely cool. This wonderful oasis of calm in Aberdeen is perfect for those occasions when you need an escape.
