The leading professional community for self-catering in Scotland, supporting the individuals and businesses in our vibrant sector.
Support for Self-Catering

I just wanted to say how very grateful I am to be a member of the ASSC. You have all put so much time and energy into helping all your members, fighting for us, advising us, giving us valuable contacts and keeping us up to date with the latest information (whether it be COVID, Licensing or just general aids to self-catering). Thank you very much, it has been invaluable for me and will be going forward.
