Christmas ScotlandA lot of people are now abandoning the stresses of family Christmas at home along with all the family politics, drunken uncles, and poorly chosen presents in favour of a relaxing, stress-free Christmas break in Scotland.

Christmas is a wonderful time to take a break in Scotland. Our scenery is wonderful with snow often adorning the mountains, and sometimes down to sea-level. With crisp winter mornings and low winter sun you really can really feel like it’s meant to be Christmas.

Hotels and self-catering accommodation across Scotland stay open for those people who want a Christmas break away from home. Many hotels do special packages so that you’ve got an all-in-one payment for your Christmas break and all food.

  • Even better, someone else does all the washing up!
  • No mess

  • Feel pampered over Christmas
