Annex A: The Short-Term Rental Sector, Housing and Tourism in Scotland

Annex[1] A: The Short-Term Rental Sector, Housing and Tourism in Scotland

This Annex presents an overview of the available evidence on the short-term rental sector in Scotland. It begins by looking at traditional self-catering accommodation, then discusses collaborative economy accommodation platforms, with a particular focus on Airbnb (which is the online platform for which most information is publically available). Finally, it provides relevant background information on Housing and Tourism in Scotland, which is the context within which the short-term rental sector operates.

Evidence has been gathered from recent publications from the Scottish Government, local authorities, academic research, Airbnb reports and other sources.
