We stay in 4 STAR quality B&Bs, inns and
on occasion tasteful, small 18th/19th century hotels, although one or two nights
may be in a modern, tasteful, Scottish Hotel. Your room will always have a private bathroom
and most of the time this will be en-suite.
Accommodation is chosen to meet the following standards:
- Lovely, fresh decor and cleanliness of rooms
- The welcome feel of the house and host
- Customer service of the owners and staff
- Great breakfasts
- Quieter locations for a good night's sleep
Note: We strive to provide rooms either with twin beds or a large double (queen/king) bed where requested, however, staying in small country homes limits our our choices. There may be a time when you will be in your second choice. For non-couple guests: Hosts are offering fewer twin rooms than in the past. What this means for you - Two friends travelling together will probably need to share a double (queen/king when available) bed during part of the journey.
These are pictures of some places we have stayed.
Special! In 2015, on the Jamie and Claire Tour, we have reserved our rooms for the season at a lovely Grand Country House (aka Big Hoosie - rhymes with Moosie). The interior has a relaxed opulence of a fine castle and a few 4 poster beds thrown in for good measure. The views over the countryside are lovely. We plan to stay here for two nights, giving you time to relax into the fireside atmosphere with good conversation, a wee dram, a cup of cocoa and fabulous cuisine. This has proven to be a winner with our guests in a trial run and far outreaches in decor, service and comfort, ALL castles available to us, so we're quite pleased! A house that would make any ancient Laird envious.
Note: Private Tours ~ Fancy a week in a Grand House or private Castle of your own with your family and friends? We can arrange this for you.
