Scotland Vacation Rentals

Scotland is a land where untamed beauty reigns over ruined castles, ancient cities, and an expansive countryside that is teeming with natural splendor. No matter which part of this dynamic country appeals to your vacation senses, a Scotland vacation rental is always an excellent option for getting the most out of your adventure.

Considered the gateway to Central Scotland’s many wonders, the capital city of Edinburgh is a treasure in itself as the former seat of Scottish royalty and the current home of boundless beauty. Guests of Edinburgh and Lothians vacation rentals can set their calendar to coincide with the dynamic Edinburgh International Festival during the summer and then enjoy the many fine attractions in the area, including the Royal Botanic Garden and the Museum of Scotland. However, a stroll through Old Town and along the Royal Mile, which will take you past Edinburgh Castle, is one of the best ways to experience the real Edinburgh.

Just south of Edinburgh lies the Borders region, home of romantic castle remains and plenty of breathtaking scenery. Guests of Scottish Borders vacation rentals should head to Melrose for excellent views along the River Tweed and some truly spectacular abbey ruins. Jedburgh is a great option for the home formerly inhabited by Mary Queen of Scots, while Castle Douglas offers attractions such as Threave Castle, Cardoness Castle, and Sweetheart Abbey.

The County of Fife is home to splendid diversity from its royal palaces and castles to its shimmering lakes and stunning landscapes. Always at the top of any itinerary, guests of Fife vacation rentals should make a beeline for the Trossachs, located northeast of Loch Lomand, for some of the finest scenery in Scotland. Lake Lomand, the most beautiful lake in the country, is also worth a look, while a round of golf on any of St. Andrews’ six magnificent courses, particularly the Old Course, is bound to be one of the most memorable parts of any Fife experience.

Guests of Ayrshire and Arran vacation rentals will find that the best of Scotland, featuring moors, lochs, rocky coasts, and sandy bays, is represented entirely in this area. In Arran, the Brodick Castle and the Isle of Arran Heritage Museum are the major attractions, but a hiking tour, complete with views of Goatfell peak or the Glen Sannox, is best for exploring the countryside. For those in Ayrshire, consider a round on the Ailsa championship course to experience an adventure full of ocean winds, rough grasses, and challenging bunkers.

A place where scenery and shopping combine for a relaxing getaway destination, the ancient city of Perth offers excellent attractions and convenience to the Highlands. Guests of Perthshire vacation rentals can visit the crowning place of Kings, Scone Palace, and hike the picturesque countryside that surrounds this historic home. There are also numerous quaint shops and other sights that may be interest, including the Perth Art Gallery and Museum or the Balhousie Castle.

Other popular accommodations in Scotland include Stirling vacation rentals, which are convenient to the beautiful Stirling Castle, and Highlands and Islands vacation rentals.

To experience a relaxing getaway where you explore more moving landscapes and historical wonders than you ever imagined, stay in a Scotland cottage rental that surrounds you with the very best of this pristine country.
