holiday homes in Scotland

Award winning eco-friendly holiday accommodation is increasingly popular so why not take your next break in an eco-friendly holiday home: experience all the benefits of 21st century style and comfort whilst knowing that the environment and ecology have been given due respect.

We strongly believe that quality and luxury can live side by side with the care of our environment and we showcase a marvellous variety of eco-friendly holiday cottages which vary from traditional thatched cottages to newly built wooden lodges. You may wish to stay in a self-catering holiday cottage on environmentally friendly working farms where you can purchase fresh organic meat, eggs from chickens which are truly free range and vegetables from traditional organic gardens. Some properties have solid fuel Agas or Rayburns, which are synonymous with country living and good food. You might chose an energy efficient wooden lodge which has been individually hand built by skilled craftsmen and made of sustainable materials, where you can pamper yourself, sleep in king size beds, relax in your own jacuzzi and sit in the evenings in front of a biomass log burner for space heating.

These green self-catering holiday homes are often set in stunning Scottish countryside - perfect exploring the great outdoors. Many are accessible by public transport too. Visit Scotland operates a Green Tourism award scheme and many of the properties listed here have achieved the Green Tourism gold award - however lots of cottages don't participate in the scheme but are still very green!

Self-catering eco-friendly holiday properties come with a raft of environmentally friendly features. Many of the eco-friendly homes offered are heated by solar panels and have ground source heat pumps and of course all are lit with low-energy lighting and have full recycling facilities including composting. Some offer water from natural springs; others have mains drinking water but filtered rain water is used for washing.

A lot of attention to detail has gone into ensuring that top quality furnishings blend in with the traditional character of the buildings of our eco friendly holiday houses, such as thatched cottages and refurbished traditional stone barns. Many self catering green holiday accommodation offers a unique blend of ethical principles with 5 star comforts. Organic cotton bed linen, towels, environmentally-friendly hand soap, washing powder, washing-up liquid and dishwasher tablets are often provided as well as Fairtrade tea and coffee.

Make the most of your next Scottish holiday and reduce your carbon footprint by choosing from a superb selection of eco-friendly holiday houses, giving you the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing your bit to help preserve our environment. An eco holiday is the way of the future!
