IMPORTANT: Short Term Let Licensing Laws  

The Scottish Government announced its intent to licence short-term let in Scotland in 2022. Note the key dates and deadlines. 

It is a legal requirement to obtain the statutory Short Term Lets Licence. For further information please see the following links where you can find out more about the legislation and read the Scottish Government guidance for hosts and operators at:

Argyll Self Catering Holidays (ASCH) conform with these regulations and are unable to trade with any self-catering properties who do not fulfil this legislation.


From 1 October 2022, all new operators of short-term lets must apply for a licence. They must not accept bookings or receive guests until their licence has been granted. This also applies to existing operators who are establishing new short-term lets on or after 1 October 2022. If you are a new holiday home you will have to factor in that you can only apply after you have the property and it could be some time before a licence is granted. 


Those already operating short-term lets before 1 October 2022 were required to apply for a licence by 1 October 2023.

By January 2025, operating a short-term let without a licence will be illegal.  

Each local authority will handle applications differently. You can keep up-to-date with plans in your area by accessing Visit Scotland’s dedicated  information and the Scottish Government website.
