Vacation rentals in Scotland

Living in Scotland's pulsating metropolises

The heart of Scottish culture beats in Scotland's cities. So it's no wonder you'll find what you're looking for in the Highlands, especially in urban centres such as Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Hamilton and Inverness. A quarter in Scotland's metropolises promises an ideal mixture of culture, cuisine and historical sights, especially as many city centres have retained their medieval charm.

A holiday apartment on the coast

If you like it a little quieter, a vacation rental in cosy small towns such as the historically significant Stirling or the small town of Glenrothes, famous for its whisky, is a good choice. Nature lovers are drawn to the Highlands or the wildly romantic coastal towns in the northwest, where you can experience Scotland from its rough side. The picturesquely situated quarters on the Orkney Islands as well as the islands Islay, Jura and Arran are also highly recommendable.

Travelers and Activities

Eldorado for history fans

In almost every corner of Scotland you can breathe the breath of history, as the Celts left their traces on the spot more than 3,000 years ago. Embark on a journey of discovery through the millennia and explore Bronze Age excavation sites, the Stone Age pile dwellings of the Scottish Crannog Centre, the remains of the Roman Antoninus Wall or the numerous medieval castles that take you far away from modern everyday life to another world. The National Wallace Monument, dedicated to the Scottish national hero William Wallace, and the Rosslyn Chapel, known from the novel Sacrilege, are particularly worth seeing in addition to the Edinburgh City Palace.

Culinary discover Scotland

Scottish cuisine is far better and more varied than its reputation. Accordingly, during your trip to Scotland you should visit one of the quaint restaurants where the locals are also guests. In coastal regions in particular, specialities such as wild salmon baked in puff pastry with Vermouth Dill sauce or haddock prepared in a variety of ways await you. A little more hearty is the Highlands, where one likes to serve the lamb stew "Lamd and Kidney Pie" or game dishes like the braised grouse. If you like it sweet, you can treat yourself to "Crumpets", "Shortbread" or a piece of the traditional fruit cake "Black Bun".

Things to know

Best travel time

If you are planning a trip to Scotland, you should consider the period between the beginning of May and the end of August, especially as the lush green landscape is in full bloom at this time and rainfall is limited. Ideal for hikers is May, when the notorious midges are not yet abundant in the Highlands. If you want to experience Scotland's west coast from its rough side and don't shy away from a little precipitation, September is the ideal travel month for you.

Regular events

The fact that the Scots are a very festive people is shown by the countless event highlights. The Glasgow Folk Festival kicks off in January. This is followed by musical highlights such as the Edinburgh Folk Festival in April, the Orkney Folk Festival in May and the Hebridian Celtic Music Festival in July. Other highlights include the Caledonian Beer Festival in June, the Burns Night in honour of national bard Robert Burns, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo military music event and the Highland Games, where strong men compete in disciplines such as tree trunk throwing.

Top 5 travel tips

Hiking in the Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are a paradise for hikers looking for a nature experience of a very special kind, because between rugged mountains, green heath and picturesque lakes you can shake off the burden of everyday life in no time at all.

Curiosities from the deep fryer

If you want a unique taste experience, you can taste some culinary curiosities from the deep fryer in Scotland. Probably one of the most unusual combinations is the fried Marsriegel, which already enjoys cult status among tourists.

Visiting Nessie

Scarcely any other place in Scotland is so surrounded by mysteries as the legendary Loch Ness, where legend has it that a primeval monster resides. Visit the up to 247 meters deep lake and be the first to truly see Nessie.

On the Trail of Scottish Water of Life

Whisky and Scotland belong together like the Catholic Church and the Pope. Whisky lovers in Scotland can not only try one or two drops of the water of life, but also get an insight into the art of whisky distilling during a visit to a distillery.

Scottish National Museum

The National Museum in Edinburgh is a must for tourists, as it is one of the 20 most visited museums in the world and will take you on an inspiring journey through Scotland's history with its 20,000 exhibits.
