On EmbraceScotland, you can book unique self-catering holiday cottages directly with owners for great prices and personal guest experiences. Our new site makes it faster and easier to find the perfect hidden gem for your holiday in Scotland.
Whether you’ve got dates in mind, a region in mind, or even if you just fancy a place with a hot tub, the new site allows you to search for and browse through hundreds of unique self-catering holiday cottages.
Explore by area, inspiration, and/or availability, and click through to book directly with our reliable, quality-assured network of property owners. And even better, every owner of the homes-from-home on our site is a member of Scotland’s official self-catering trade body, the ASSC.
Our mission at EmbraceScotland is to support Scotland’s self-catering industry and provide a more considered, authentic alternative to other OTAs (Online Travel Agencies).
We provide direct, commission-free bookings for our members, whilst supporting the sector as the only trade association representing self-catering businesses in Scotland, the Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers.
