Have a look at www.vrbo.com www.homeaway.co.uk www.unique-cottages.co.uk www.abade.co.uk and www.cottagesdirect.co.uk

If you find a place of interest and would like to know more, please post a link on the forums, as another member may know the house or area. Bear in mind that if most houses in an area have weekly rents of £2000 and you find one for £900 a week, it's a fair bet that the latter will not exist, the website having been cobbled together by Mr Mbilte and his pals in Lagos.

If the owner or agent asks for a deposit or rent to be paid only by bank transfer or Western Union, think twice. The bank account could be one used by a third party who will then forward the money to Mr Mbilte; Western Union funds may be picked up by anyone in the world.

Your post is asking - "please advise of availability and rates, amenities...". That seems like an invitation to an owner to advertise their property. TA rules forbid self advertising, promotion. Looks like you've got to find somewhere yourself.

Jusrt noticed all the duplicate postings, I still think its way too early to book and specifically pay for anything for 2014, How our economy is at the moment many self catering/BandBs may have given up by then, and new ones will be added.

Wouldnt think its too early to look for accomodation as the Ryder Cup takes place at Gleneagles during that time.

Enjoy Scotland!

I think it is highly likely this group are planning a trip to the Ryder Cup, hence the reference to travelling distance to Gleneagles.

However, I hope the OP has a magic route to tickets if they are looking to book accommodation just now as my understanding is that they only way to get tickets is either through the ballot, or through an official package - which have not been made available.

Look on www.visitscotland.com - remember there may be people who will open their houses just for the event.
