Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers

The Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) was formed in 1978 by a handful of self-catering providers, including our dad, Jimmy. A tenacious lot, they mostly battled the government to recognise them as a businesses and so award them business rates. However they were also committed to the principles of quality, and to promoting high and consistent standards in self-catering. They are principles that still guide ASSC today, and Lochend Chalets is proud to be an accredited member.

The ASSC is led, managed and inspired by the people who own and run self-catering accommodation throughout Scotland.

Scottish Tourist Board - Visit Scotland

We have also been involved with the Scottish Tourist Board’s grading and classification scheme since its beginnings. The scheme has been refined over the years, with the help of visitors’ feedback, providers’ opinions and officials who undergo regular training from Visit Scotland. We hope that it provides reassurance and gives you a guide to what you can expect from a visit to Lochend Chalets.
