Private House Stays
Private House Stays™ is a simple, user-friendly website which helps you find and book privately-owned and occupied holiday or business accommodation throughout Scotland, 24 hours a day.
On this site, a 'private house' can be anything from a Bed & Breakfast or small guest house, to a cosy chalet or romantic castle. Each property has a description of its location, its facilities and areas of local interest, and many also have an online calendar where you can check availability instantly, helping you to plan your trip quickly and easily.
The one thing every property has in common is that they're all privately-owned and occupied. We've purposely avoided listing large hotel chains because, as Bed & Breakfast owners ourselves for over 12 years, we believe that the best way to enjoy Scotland is by staying with local people in their own properties. This way you can benefit from a truly personal service, abundant local knowledge and the opportunity to connect with people who live in the area you're visiting.
Start by browsing the site, either by the map, the
area or the Search box to see what's on offer.
If you see something you like, you can check availability and prices, and make a booking online in a matter of minutes.
No fuss, no surcharges.
"When I used Private House Stays for booking my last trip to Scotland, I can't tell you how much I appreciated being able to see availability and book online. Being in another country that's 8 hours behind Scotland makes phoning for reservations difficult and painstaking at times when booking in more popular places where B&B's often have no availability."
"My experience with Private House Stays was excellent. Made to feel very welcome and nothing too much trouble."
"Private House Stays has helped us to find some of the B&Bs which had been small treasures! Thank you!"
"I was expecting a computerised booking service, with no "human" contact, so it was a pleasant surprise to get an e mail from you, enquiring as to how we had got on with our booking."
