New site promotes Scottish vacation rentals
The Association of Scotland’s Self Caterers (ASSC) has launched a well-designed website, Embrace Scotland, to link travellers with more than 2,500 vacation rental properties. You can search by region, number of people, property type (apartment, lodge, cottage and so on) and star rating (currently assigned by VisitScotland). Check boxes allow you to specify that you’re looking for a green, pet-friendly or handicapped-accessible property. There’s also a handy search function that lets you track down properties available within the next four weeks.
