Top Areas in Scotland for Group Holidays

Edinburgh – as Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh is a popular choice with groups.  With a huge selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and an impressive historic castle, there is so much to discover in Edinburgh with friends and family.  Large holiday homes within Edinburgh itself can be in short supply but it may be possible to rent a large country house within an hour’s drive of Edinburgh, or even within a half hour drive for days and nights out in the city.

Glasgow – less well known than Edinburgh and less known for its finer scenery, Glasgow though has a multitude of attractions for visitors and a friendly charm that is hard to surpass.  Many of the restaurants and bars in Glasgow have an arty vibe and the cuisine is amongst some of the best to be found in the UK.  Glasgow has a heady mix of attractions and lots to keep groups entertained.  As with Edinburgh, finding a large holiday let within Glasgow itself can be a challenge so renting a large country house within half an hour or an hour’s drive of the city could be the best choice and offer you the best of both worlds.

If your group prefers the great outdoors and exploring unspoilt countryside then there are a great choice of options including the Scottish Highlands where groups can enjoy walks, bike rides, hikes and fishing.  For groups keen to discover history, Aberdeenshire with its castle country could be an ideal choice.

For something truly special look out for properties with features like games rooms for fun times on holiday or for keeping fit and active, perhaps a larger holiday house with a pool or hot tub could be the perfect choice for your group.

Whatever type of large holiday home you opt to rent and whichever part of Scotland you opt to holiday in, we hope you find the ideal choice for your gathering of friends and family on
