Or take your drink out onto the basement patio at the front (furniture). With a sheltered area, it can be enjoyed even in less clement weather. The modern kitchen is superbly equipped, though why eat in, when you have some of the best restaurants in Europe within walking distance? In the last decades, Glasgow has reinvented itself as an amazing holiday venue. It is a city with a continuous buzz, which oozes wit and character. From close to the house you can catch the Clockwork Orange, as the outgoing and friendly Glaswegians refer to their metro, which will take you right round the central city area.

Fife 103 Near St. Andrews - 6 bedrooms - Sleeps 13
This castle stands on a bluff above the River Eden in the beautiful countryside of North East Fife. It is just 6 miles from St Andrews, and thus within an hour's drive of Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh. The castle, first mentioned in 1160, was traditionally occupied by the Bishops of St Andrews or their bailiffs. In the 16th century it was substantially rebuilt and reached its apogee in the early 16th century when it was the home of John Spottiswood, Archbishop of St. Andrews and Chancellor of Scotland. The castle fell into ruin in the 19th century, and has been rebuilt as a family home using some of the original material by the current owners between 1993 and 1996. The castle is built on 4 floors. On the first floor there is a well equipped kitchen with an Aga and gas cooking facilities. This opens into the Great Hall, which is stone-flagged and lined with portraits of characters associated with the castle. Here there is an oak dining table which seats 12 and a wood burning fire. The second floor has a family room with TV, and toyroom. On the top floor there is a picture gallery, which runs the length of the castle, and a study. The accommodation consists of the main bedroom with a large four-poster bed, two four-poster single beds and an ensuite bathroom. In the square tower there are two bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms. In the vaulted cellars there is a "dungeon" twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

Fife 104 Pittenweem - 2 bedrooms - Sleeps 4
This house is fun - not the least because of the fluctuating expectations that getting there arouses, and the fact that it acquaints you with some good Scots words which do not readily translate into English! First it seems that you are actually leaving the quaint little fishing village of Pittenweem in the picturesque 'East Neuk' of Fife. Then the directions take you through a modern council estate. But another turn and hey presto, you are back in the old town descending to the harbour. Park just short of it, have the courage of your convictions and go through the white door, through the little 'close' or 'pend' behind it, up the stairs, gaily decorated with tubs of flowers in season and you're there. Even before you are properly through the door, you will encounter the delightful little covered 'sit-ooterie', where you can sit in comfort even in less pleasant weather. The apartment is light and airy, decorated in greens and blues and yellows that remind you of its marine situation and of the sunshine that you are hopefully going to enjoy there. The south-facing sitting room has superb views over the harbour; the gas central heating and open fire mean that these views can be enjoyed in warmth and comfort at all seasons of the year. The accommodation consists of the sitting room with TV and open-fire; kitchen/dining room with cooker, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine; bathroom with bath, shower, WC and basin; and 2 bedrooms (1 double bedded and 1 twin bedded).

Scotland Countryside
Scotland 101 near Jedburgh, Roxburghshire - 2 bedrooms - Sleeps 4
Beatrix Potter, in earlier days, loved to stay in this cottage, which was the home of her brother, because here she could watch Peter Rabbit and his friends frolicking in the pretty garden, and Jemima Puddleduck and birds enjoying the nearby stream.
