Things to do

Places to go near holiday lettings in Scotland

Start with Edinburgh Castle. Scotland holiday rentals in the capital could mean a pad in the shadow of its soaring towers and turrets, close to the Royal Mile and the National War Museum with its broadswords and WW2 relics. More Jacobite immersion is on offer at Stirling Castle, where battle re-enactments and stories of Scottish kings and queens await. Others will be wowed by the vaulted Gothic roofs of Glasgow Cathedral, or left speechless by the prehistoric remains of Skara Brae on the Orkneys – older, even, than the pyramids of Egypt.


Fun things to do near Scottish holiday homes

Lochs and lonely mountains make Scotland one of the UK's most enticing outdoorsy destinations. Ready to pull on the walking boots? National parks peek out from the bald tops of the Trossachs, while the corries and grykes of Glen Coe and Ben Nevis are hard to resist. Prefer skis? Wait for winter to bring its dusting of powder to the Cairngorms – the apres is in the fire-crackling pubs down below. Cyclists or motorcyclists have no shortage of wiggling touring roadways to navigate, either. Montages of peaks and massifs and rugged islands are theirs for the taking.


Local weather for your stay holiday homes in Scotland

Scotland changes greatly from season to season. Summers are when most people seek out Scotland holiday rentals, with cities like Edinburgh coming to life during the Fringe Festival and other events between May and August. For walkers and outdoorsy types, summer, along with spring and autumn – anytime between April and October – means prime conditions for exploring the Highlands and lochs. Winter is an altogether different story. It's cold, sometimes sub-zero, with snow on the peaks and Hogmanay blowouts in the towns.

Natural features

Untamed Scotland

Scotland's natural side rarely fails to draw a gasp. Leaving behind the castles of Edinburgh and the cathedrals of Glasgow, travellers are soon immersed in the wild Highlands. They start with the gorgeous Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and then rise to peaks of more than 1,300 metres where Ben Nevis – the highest in the UK – tops out near Fort William. The waterfalls, pine forests and fells of the Cairngorms National Park soon take over, hiding lochs and hearty country villages within. The Scottish coast is raw and windswept, extending out to the far-flung Orkney Islands and summit-carved Skye.

Family friendly
