Although Scotland promises unbelievable sights and lots of adventure, it can’t always promise good weather – that’s why booking a self-catering holiday cottage with a games room is always a great idea.
If you want a quiet day in where you can really enjoy the house, you’ll have plenty of space to spread out with loads of fun activities at your fingertips – whether you’re super competitive or just want to blow off some steam.
Looking for a little inspiration before booking a Scottish getaway? Here are our favourite properties with games rooms:

Located in the Highlands, this large home sleeps up to 18 people. Quite often with a party that size, everyone wants to do something different and here, there are lots of activities to keep the whole group happy. The games room boasts table tennis, table football, a library, a shelf full of board games and a TV with DVD player. You can go out during the day and spend long evenings in here with the fire lit, and there is even a sauna hidden upstairs!
Sleeping 10, this house is beautifully situated amongst hills and trees, which can all be enjoyed from the view out of the games room window! Being set in the Cairngorms National Park, you can be sure to have fun-filled days out exploring and then you can come back and enjoy a spot of snooker in a sophisticated setting – perhaps with a dram after dinner! The open fire makes it extra cosy.
This magical place on Loch Maree, Achnasheen, can only be reached by boat and is a luxurious peaceful retreat in the Highlands. Set on its own estate, you are fully looked after by the staff who can help you explore and experience the best of this part of the world. Although completely isolated, the house, sleeping 18, is fully equipped to help you relax and stay entertained. The pool table is set beside the living room so everyone can be together, and the cosy fire keeps a warming atmosphere on a chilly night.
