Perfect for families, couples, larger groups and visitors on a budget, or just for an alternative to city centre accommodation, Edinburgh holiday cottages are numerous around the beautiful rural Lothians of outer Edinburgh. Opt for an idyllic rural and canalside location - stay in a West Lothian holiday cottage close to Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, and the fun family Linlithgow Canal Centre.

Book a holiday cottage in Midlothian’s Penland Hills to the south of the city centre with a range of attractions and outdoor activities right on your doorstep including Europe’s longest ski slope, the Scottish Mining Museum and Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World at Dobbies.

If you’re looking for a spectacular Edinburgh coastal base, choose a holiday cottage in East Lothian. You’ll find plenty of character coastal cottages lining the Berwick and Dunbar coast to the east of the city. Don’t miss a tour of the Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian!
