About us

We offer short lets via our unique bespoke website, which offers versatile search facilities and user-friendly features. Our partners appreciate our knowledge, efficiency, organization skills, reliability and can-do attitude, and recommend us to their friends. We have lived in Edinburgh for many years and our intimate knowledge of the city – and the rest of Scotland – means that we are well placed to advise owners and guests.


You’ll appreciate the careful organization that we put in to arranging your accommodation. Booking accommodation on the internet can be risky, but you can rely on us to find you the most suitable accommodation and to take the risk out of the process.


Our knowledge and experience as owners and agents mean that we are uniquely qualified to advise you on setting up your property as holiday accommodation and to act as agents for your property. We work with various web portals to showcase properties across the web, and synchronize availability calendars to guard against any double bookings. We also work with VisitScotland, and our live availability calendars and prices can be accessed via the VisitScotland website. If you're a property owner, you can add your property to our vrscot.com website and we'll also include a listing and online booking on the VisitScotland website as well as other web portals.

We look forward to hearing from you.

We appreciated the personal touches before and during our stay.
The liaison throughout the booking and stay was fantastic.
Vacation Rentals Scotland made organizing our trip very easy and even texted us to check that everything was OK during our stay.
Hi, We all arrived as planned and the apartment is really great! We like it very much and feel at home here! No questions, everything's perfect! Thanks for your message. You do a great job for tourists in Edinburgh and Scotland! Kind regards
I was quite impressed at how every possible need has been addressed in advance! Well appointed, clean and well organized.
We all had a great time in this excellent apartment. Will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
There is no question that when traveling in the UK, staying in self-catering units like this one is the best option by far. We did this last year when we were in Cornwall and York and it sure works for us. You can get up when you want, make coffee, have a slow breakfast and then face the day... I really like the way the people at Vacation Rentals Scotland handle things... I would recommend them to anyone wanting to visit this city.
Thanks! I've looked up the bus station lockers and they are indeed a lot cheaper [than at the railway station] - thanks for the tip! I wouldn't get that advice from an anonymous, corporate company - which is why I always prefer to deal with smaller companies on the ground, if I can.
