Vacation like you mean it with Scotland Vacation rentals
If you're looking for a vacation that ignites all of your senses, Scotland will tick every box. Choose to kick back and relax, see some spectacular scenery, be inspired by creative genius, or throw yourself into some seriously adventurous action.

Arriving in Scotland
The main airports are at Glasgow, Prestwick, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. There are regular flights from London, as well as from several European cities.
Driving through the stunning countryside and its cosmopolitan cities will give you a true flavour of all that that Scotland has to offer. If you choose to enjoy Scotland vacation homes, renting a car will allow you to make the most of every possible opportunity during your break.
Eat, drink and be merry
For foodies, Scotland is the place to visit. Dishes that you can't get anywhere else include Aberdeen Angus beef, Stornoway black pudding, Arbroath Smokies, and Shetland salmon. The Scots are also justifiably proud of their homemade whisky, ales, scones, shortbread and haggis. They also love curry. Glasgow has been named the curry capital of Britain four times!
The Scottish climate
Scotland is coldest in January and February. However, the ever-popular ski season runs from November and April, and attracts visitors from all over the world. July and August are the best times to visit if you'd like to soak up some sun or hike the Highlands while staying in Scotland vacation rentals.
Seeing the sights
You won't fail to be impressed by the sights in the land of the thistle. If you're a fan of Shakespeare, Cawdor Castle is the fictional home of the Thane of Cawdor in Macbeth. Looking for the royal seal of approval? You won't go wrong with a trip to Balmoral, an official residence of the British Royal Family.
Choosing to stay in a Scotland vacation rental means that you will be in an optimal position to explore and find the best place to view the ethereal Northern Lights. Some of the premium spots for seeing this natural phenomonon in the sky include the islands of Shetland, Orkney and Skye.
Soak up the culture
History buffs will be in their element at the National War Museum in Edinburgh. The work of famous architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh features at the Glasgow School of Art and the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery.
The Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh and the Burrell Collection in Glasgow attract a global audience of art lovers, with works by Monet, Van Gogh and Cezanne.
For music events, Perth Concert Hall, the Music Hall in Aberdeen and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall all host a dizzying choice of treats for the ears.
Captivate the kids in Scotland
One of the great advantages of Scotland vacation rentals is the wealth of fun on offer for children. Why not try Active Kid Adventure Park near Perth. Kids can enjoy interacting with animals, climbing and jumping on trampolines and jungle gyms, or burning off all that energy in the indoor soft play area. The Galloway Activity Center in Castle Douglas offers sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, outdoor laser wars and much more, and is great for young people who live on the sporty, adrenaline-filled side of life! The Glasgow Science Center educates and delights in equal measure, and is fascinatingly fun for kids of all ages.
Enjoy Scottish evening delights
While there will be evenings in which you're happy to kick back in your Scotland vacation home, venturing out will yield a whole host of opportunites to enjoy fun and frolics. The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh is sure to give you the giggles, or check out Justice Mill Lane in Aberdeen for a sophisticated evening of cocktails and live music.
Thrills and spills are de rigeur when you take a Ghost Bus Tour in Edinburgh, a spookily enertaining evening of fun. Or take an evening cruise along beautiful Loch Ness, where the infamous monster might surprise you!
