Edinburgh Castle to Rent
A good option for a family or group is to rent a cottage or even a castle in Scotland! Most castles or cottages are self-catering allowing you to save on expensive meals out, some Edinburgh cottages or castles also provide food should you require this. Most cottages and castles are not in the city centre so you are likely to need a car for trips to the city. Click 'go' to see our list.
