Bed & breakfasts (B&Bs)

Simple yet rich in local character, the B&Bs chosen are clean, comfortable and run by hosts that help add to your experience.


Similar to bed & breakfasts, these family-owned accommodations are clean and comfortable. Rooms with en suites generally have a shower but no bath due to space. There may be a separate room with a bath tub.

Country Inns

Enjoy the cosy country setting and convenience of staying in a comfortable property that is attached to a restaurant or pub with rooms usually above.

Breakfast is included on all our trips and Scotland is home to whole host of foodie experiences from the well-known haggis normally included in a full Scottish breakfast to game meats and delicious seafood. After a days walking you may wish to whet your palette with a wee dram of Scotland's finest whiskys.
