When I am looking for that perfect condo, cabin, or vacation rental, I always turn to HomeAway for my vacation rental needs. When traveling with a large family like myself with five children and four grandchildren, we need options that hotels cannot sometimes accommodate.

  1. Oh wow, I can't even tell you how much I would love to win this trip! Scotland is one of the top places on my dream vacation list. Staying in a castle would make the experience even more amazing! What a cool way to celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast!

    WOW! What a giveaway! This is one of those place that are on my bucket list! I am heading to Italy in 2 weeks so maybe I can win this one :)
  3. Oh I so wish I could enter this giveaway! My family emigrated from Scotland back in the early 1800's so it would have been so neat to go and see where "we came from". Who ever wins this is going to have a wonderful time!!
  4. Thanks for sharing this giveaway with us. This looks like an amazing prize. I have never been to Scotland but I would love to visit one day. In fact, I am hoping to do more traveling within the next few years. I hope I win this!
  5. This would be an awesome vacation for me! I have never been to Scotland. I would love to tour and stay the night in the Duns castle. I might even bring my family along to enjoy the castle experience.
  6. Holy Smokes! That is a contest I would definitely love to win! My challenge would be deciding who the other guests would be as there's more than 20 who'd want to come with me.
  7. Wow, this would be absolutely amazing! What a stunning place to visit. Who wouldn't want to stay in a CASTLE?! Okay, yea... so I don't travel much, never been out of the US and such... I'm a young mom. Maybe one day I'll be able to travel and visit a beautiful castle!
