Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Scotland.

Scotland has been popular with tourists from all over the world for many decades, attracted by the stunning and dramatic natural scenery, interesting and lively cities and the country’s very individual sense of culture and identity. Although much of that Scottish identity is a modern invention, it is difficult to walk round any town in Scotland without seeing someone in a kilt, hearing the sound of bagpipes or seeing the local delicacy haggis advertised in restaurants.

Edinburgh is the main tourist destination in Scotland and is home to dozens of varied attractions. From the castle, located right in the heart of the city, to Holyrood Palace and Abbey at the other end of the Royal Mile and all the points of interest in between, there is plenty to keep visitors of all ages entertained. Several bus companies run tours of the city, which is a great way to get your bearings. Make sure you pick one which takes you down to the Port of Leith, where the Royal Yacht Britannia is now moored and open to the public. Edinburgh is at its busiest in August, when the Fringe festival turns most of the city’s empty spaces into comedy and theatre venues. There are thousands of shows to choose from each year, from TV celebrities to free shows in pubs. The book festival also takes place in August, while the well-regarded International Film festival has now been moved to June.

Glasgow is the city to head for if you enjoy shopping or are looking for the liveliest nightlife. Edinburgh may be the capital of Scotland, but Glasgow is bigger and has much more to offer in the way of entertainment and is also home to some of the best restaurants, bars and live music venues. Dundee is less of a tourist Mecca, but is the final resting place of the Discovery, the vessel that took Captain Scott to the Antarctic. Further north, Aberdeen is now home to an industrial harbour thanks to the success of the North Sea oil industry, but its pleasant old town and ancient university are worth exploring, as is the impressive St Machar Cathedral. Much of the beach has remained unspoilt, despite the proximity of the harbour, while the city is also home to several large parks and gardens, including Seaton Park in the old town and Duthie Park, where there are winter gardens should you need somewhere to shelter from the Scottish weather!

Inverness is the most northerly of Scotland’s cities and it is close to the world-famous Loch Ness. Many local companies run bus tours around the Loch, often including a boat tour so you can try and spot Nessie, the monster who according to legend lives in the water.
