Guest houses and B&Bs are dotted all over the Scotland and Ireland – you can stay in B&B everywhere from the heart of Edinburgh to a remote, deserted corner of the Isle of Lewis. B&Bs are great places to stay, where you ensured of a warm welcome and are treated like one of the family. Discover the charm and character of individually decorated bedrooms, meet fellow travellers, get a sense of how the locals live and enjoy a home cooked breakfast in the morning!
Scottish Highland Trails will only ever book properties personally known to us which are of a minimum 3 star Visit Scotland / Northern Ireland Tourist Board / Fáilte Ireland standard.
A great way to get to know the locals is to stay in a Scottish Bed & Breakfast or Guest House. Known for their personal touch, a stay in a B&B is to experience a “home from home”. Your hosts will most likely have an excellent knowledge of the surrounding area and can be called upon for everything from restaurant recommendations to where to buy the best local produce. B&Bs can be found throughout Scotland, in the cities and in the rural areas. You could stay on a farm, a city townhouse, a country cottage or even a lighthouse – there are lots of options!
All of the B&Bs and Guest Houses we recommend are known to us personally and graded to at least 3 stars (many are 4 or 5!) by Visit Scotland, the national tourism body.
