Self-catering holiday cottages in Scotland

Enjoy your Scottish break from the comfort of your own cosy cottage

Scotland is a beautiful country, steeped in history and culture, but it also offers endless activities: from fishing for wild salmon and trout in Argyll and Perthshire; to visiting the many Scottish castles and whisky distilleries scattered throughout the Highlands; to sampling the sensational mix of history and nightlife in cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh, Stirling and Aberdeen. Indeed, wherever you head, the landscape alone may be enough to tempt you to retire permanently to a self-catering holiday cottage in Scotland! Scottish holiday cottages are perfect for weekend breaks or regular holidays. They're easy to reach and offer fantastic value for money. That way, you have more time and money with which to really get the most from your stay, and by using the HomeAway search service, you can also save time and money when finding your perfect self-catering cottage, log cabin or even Scottish castle.

Holiday cottages in Scotland: Edinburgh

Edinburgh is an international city of the highest calibre, with galleries, museums and attractions as far as the eye can see. There's also a bustling nightlife, ranging from cosy neighbourhood pubs to up-scale cocktail bars, whose unique and delicious potions are made my 'mixologists'. The Edinburgh Festival brings visitors – and acts – from across the globe, and of all the Scottish castles, Edinburgh Castle, which towers majestically over the city, is the undisputed jewel. There might not be many cottages in the city itself, but there are plenty located on the outskirts from which you can travel to and from the centre each day.

Holiday cottages in Scotland: Highlands and Islands

The Scottish Highlands are the perfect place to get away from it all. Here you can enjoy the finest walking, climbing and fishing holidays – all framed by swards of heather and that stately sombreness for which the Scottish countryside is renowned. Certainly, then, the Scottish Highlands are the most spectacular place to rent a holiday cottage in Scotland; choose one in Inverness, and find yourself within reach of Ullapool, and the ferry to Isle of Lewis, or simply sample the beauty of island life with a cottage on the Isle of Skye.

Holiday cottages in Scotland: Perthshire

The green heart of Scotland, Perthshire, is a magnificent – and often underrated – region to visit. With 30 top golf courses, fantastic fishing holidays and a vast range of terrains perfect for everything from climbing to river rafting, sailing to skiing, Perthshire is sure to please those who long for outdoor activities without, perhaps, wanting to dare the quietude and isolation of the Scottish Highlands.

Holiday cottages in Scotland: Fife

The wonderfully peaceful Fife, blessed with miles of golden beaches, many top class golf courses and thick, unspoilt woodlands is a great place to take a self-catering Scottish cottage, especially for golfers, walkers and beach lovers. But should the desire for a night out – as it so often does on holiday – strike, Edinburgh's only about an hour away!

Holiday cottages in Scotland: Argyll and Stirling

Scotland's West Coast is a fantastically rugged, natural, wild region where Gaelic culture continues to thrive. Filled with historic monuments, Argyll and Stirling also boast such totemic Scottish wildlife as otters, puffin and eagles – it's little wonder that cottages here are in such demand.

The flat was impeccably clean, and there were such a lot of thoughtful extra touches, like Arran toiletries and M&S biscuits to make us feel at home. We want to emphasise the beautiful bedding and the very comfortable bed, often neglected in many holiday lets. Merchant City is an area of Glasgow that was new to us, so we were very interested to discover the history of the immediate area and its lively atmosphere. You are never stuck for somewhere to eat out, but if you want to make your own meals there are a range of supermarkets very close at hand in all directions; Aldi, M&S, Sainsburys and Tesco. We additionally recommend Drygate Brewing Company, a small independent brewery, as a place to eat, or indeed drink. It has tours on Sundays which we missed and wish we'd known about. Downstairs from the flat is Gandolfi restaurant. We had a takeaway of vegetarian haggis and chips. Loved it. And I have to comment that the chap serving cleaned his hands with gel cleanser after taking money and serving everyone. Very high standards of hygiene. As well as the main places of interest why not visit the police museum on Bell Street, two minutes walk from the flat. It is run by a retired policeman and tells of the history of the police in Glasgow. Only a small place, but well worth a look at. Although our holiday was merely a few days, centered around a special event at the Hydro, we would have no hesitation in recommending Merchant City Courtyard Apartment to future visitors. We certainly would stay again.

The view from Rainbow Lodge on the water and the surrounding mountains is great. The lodge is also a good starting point to visit Aberfeldy or other villages in the neighborhood. The lodge is really comfortable and offers all the equipment you require. We can surely recommend this lodge as we had a relaxing 5 days.
