These holiday rental properties all offer unique travel experiences in some of the country’s most beautiful spots.
If you fancy spending your holidays in Scotland this year then it’s worth checking out something a little different than the usual hotel or bed and breakfast.
There are plenty of more quirky places to stay to suit all budgets – from chalets overlooking lochs, to treehouses on the edge of a national park.
1. Iona Pods
With mountain views and sandy beaches a short walk away, the Iona Pods offer a great chance to get away from it all. Each of the pods come with either a double or two single beds, power sockets, a microwave, fridge, electric hob, kettle, kitchenware and cutlery. Outside there's a picnic bench and a fire pit for alfresco snacks. All this is just 12-minute walk from Iona Abbey on a working croft on the tiny Scottish island. Photo: www.booking.com
