The Association of Scotlands Self Caterers

Find out how the Association of Scotland's Self Caterers could help support your self catering business.

Founded in 1978, the Association of Scotland's Self Caterers is the only trade body working exclusively for the owners and operators of self-catering businesses in Scotland.

The Association of Scotland's Self Caterers is committed to the principles of quality, and to promoting high and consistent standards in self-catering.  

Service, support and savings

The Association offers a wide range of services to owners of self-catering accommodation.  

We can help self-caterers:

  • boost bookings
  • market directly to thousands of visitors
  • improve business
  • save money on rates, subscriptions and other business costs
  • have a voice in Scottish tourism

For all owners

Anyone who owns, or is considering buying or developing, self-catering in Scotland is welcome in the Association.

  • Owners of single properties
  • Operators making a full or second income from their holiday home(s)
  • Owners who also let through agencies
  • Operators of large self-catering complexes

Led, managed and inspired by the people who own and run holiday cottages throughout Scotland, the Association of Scotland's Self Caterers has developed a marketing website, Embrace Scotland, to showcase some of the best holiday accommodation you can find.
