So here we are in January – the festive season behind us and a shiny new year rolled out in front.  Why should you be thinking about your summer holiday now?  Here are three good reasons!

  1. Summer is a wonderful time to visit Scotland.  Make the most of the long days (when the light is stretched out until 11pm in some parts of the country) – the lochs and rivers, hills and glens, miles of coastline and secluded beaches provide the perfect setting for a range of outdoor activities, including golfing, fishing, hill walking, mountain biking and water sports.  You can also pack your days with events such as folk and arts festivals or simply spend time relaxing and whiling away the day with a good book.  With self-catering accommodation you have the freedom and flexibility to enjoy your holiday however you wish.
  2. The summer months of June, July and August are the busiest time of year for tourists and accommodation gets booked up quickly.  The Edinburgh Festival runs through the whole of August so if you’re planning a trip to Scotland’s capital, you will need to organise your accommodation early.  As well as self-catering for the Festival, EmbraceScotland has a wide range of properties perfect for a summer break, whether you’re thinking about a cosy coastal cottage for two, a large holiday home for all the family or a luxury lodge for a weekend break.
  3. According to a recent study, most of our ‘holiday happiness‘ comes from the anticipation of a trip and the pre-holiday build up.  So for a big dose of happiness why not start planning your Scottish summer holiday now with EmbraceScotland!
