Charming B&Bs, inexpensive inns, and a few excellent luxury hotels are all here to welcome you after a day touring the Highlands. Much of the available accommodation books up far in advance in high season, when some require a minimum two-day stay.
In the more remote parts of Scotland, your best lodging option may be to rent a cottage or house. Besides allowing you to make your own meals and to come and go as you please, it can also be less expensive. VisitScotland (www.visitscotland.com), the official tourism agency, lists many cottages and even rates them with stars, just like hotels.
