Scotland's five most popular destinations have been revealed by Cottages & Castles, a UK directory of self-catering properties.
Skye featured on the list, along with the Isle of Arran, Perthshire, Inverness-shire and the West Coast.
Sue Bourne, manager of Cottages & Castles, said: “Scotland has always been a fantastic place to holiday but the outstanding weather we experienced this summer truly put Scotland on the map as one of the best holiday destinations in Europe. We have some of the most outstanding white sandy beaches – from Luskentyre on Harris to Gullane in East Lothian, Elie in Fife and Arisaig on the West Coast.
“Our bookings have consistently been increasing year on year but of notable interest was the number of last minute bookings we took this year, significantly up on last year, which is almost certainly in direct correlation with the hot weather. On the back of this we have had a number of repeat bookings for next year.
“Some of the areas remain in popular demand for obvious reasons including Arran, which really is Scotland in miniature, as well as Inverness, with visitors still seeking the elusive Loch Ness Monster. The NC500 route has had a direct impact on the number of visitors to the West Coast and most properties in this region have been fully booked all season.”
