It is not acceptable to have motorhomes parked at the property, people camping in the garden or extra guests over and above those that you have told us about. This has been an issue in the past and will be noticed by our neighbours / our housekeeper. We reserve the right to ask you to leave immediately without refund if we find that you have broken this letting condition whilst you are still at the house. We also reserve the right to make extra charges as we see suitable to cover costs for extra cleaning and wear and tear.

  • Payment: Full cleared payment for accommodation is due 3 weeks before your arrival
  • Properties are let for holiday accommodation under the rent act Scotland 1984 section 2 (1) (a).
  • Cancellation for any reason will leave the tenant liable to the full extent of the deposit / rental paid. We will, however, endeavour to re-let the property and will refund money paid, less banking charges, if we are successful and entirely at our discretion. We recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover cancellation costs.
    If the house becomes unavailable for any reason, subsequent to you having made a booking, we will cancel the booking and return any deposit paid immediately, but will not be held liable for any loss incurred by you as a result of the cancellation.
