Tick and Star Rating explained

Some of our self catering properties have been independently inspected by the Scottish Tourist Board (STB) and awarded a Scottish Tourism Council quality ‘star’ rating from 1 to 5. The more stars a property has, the higher the overall level of quality.

Unfortunately, due to Covid19 the STB have not graded properties since 2019 and are unlikely too until 2023. The STB suggest we continue to use the 2019 rating but that is not fair to customers as some properties may have changed in condition, we also have many new properties which require a rating to promote them to customers which are new since 2019. 

We have therefore applied our own ‘Largo rating’ (ticks). The rating assigned is indicated at the top of each property description and in the search results. Our management team have taken time to visit and rate each property which will help you decide which property is most suitable for your holiday and your needs. 

When the STB rating’s return in 2023 we will likely indicate the STB Star rating and the Largo Tick rating of each property which will further help you choose your property.
