holidays in scotland - cottages, lodges, hotels, parks

I used to live in Scotland, so I know how much it has to offer you on a family holiday. The beauty of family holidays in Scotland is that they are geared towards wet weather and therefore there are a wealth of things to do with your whole family regardless of rain or shine making it the perfect holiday destination for you whatever the season. But why choose my website to find your next amazing family holiday? Here are just a few reasons.
  • WE ONLY HAVE FAMILY FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION all of which will give you & your family a very warm welcome.
  • A HUGE CHOICE OF PLACES TO STAY, not only by location but also by type - cottages, apartments, lodges, hotels or parks - so basically I offer you a ONE STOP SHOP, at last a website that makes finding your holiday easy.
  • TRUST and SECURITY is VITAL FOR YOU & ME, so for some holidays, you book directly with the owner OR for others I have teamed up with reputable businesses and you book online directly with them - all of them are ABTA or ATOL members so they are fully trustworthy allowing you peace of mind.
  • RECOMMENDED HOLIDAYS BY OTHER FAMILIES who have been there and experienced them - as a mum myself I know that the best holidays we have been on are those that have been recommended by likeminded people.
  • BEST PRICE GUARANTEES are offered by many of my partner companies so you won't find yourself paying more than anyone else if you book elsewhere. You, too can ALWAYS pay the lowest possible price.
  • TELEPHONE 01244 352241 If you are looking for advice or to book a UK holiday then I have teamed up with another operator who have their own call centre to provide you with this service - lines open until 9.30pm every single day! Bookings made directly with owners are completed via the online forms on each property page or by clicking through to the owners' website from their property page

Recommended regions to visit on holiday in Scotland

The Scottish Borders are completely stunning with fabulous scenery and with plenty of interesting tourist attractions to visit to keep you & your family occupied. The Scottish Highlands are equally as dramatic with stunning, rugged scenery and coastline with magnificent views.
On the West Coast of Scotland there is equally as stunning scenery and our holiday cottages and lodges around Oban are just fabulous - choose an isolated croft on the banks of the loch, a holiday lodge or a luxury apartment in the centre of Oban with links to the Scottish Islands of the Isles of Mull and Lismore.
In Central Scotland, Stirling Castle is one of my favourites and ideal for the children to chart the history of the battles between Scotland and England - this tourist attraction is very family friendly and a great place to take the children. You may also wish to visit the bright lights and culture of Scotland's capital in the East - Edinburgh, or in West Scotland, Glasgow is equally as fascinating.
All of the holiday accommodation that we offer you is family friendly. Cottages, parks, lodges, hotels & self catering apartments have services such as babysitting, kids club, baby equipment, DVD players, games rooms and swimming pools to keep all of the children occupied whilst you enjoy your holiday too!
