Hotels in Scotland

Scotland has refurbished several old buildings, including castles, to accommodate the needs of travelers. But of course, the country offers many types of lodgings, from quaint bed-and-breakfasts to modern luxury hotels. Here are our picks for some of the best hotels in Scotland:

Airth Castle is not only a reminder of Scotland’s glorious past—it's also a peaceful country retreat. This Scottish hotel was originally built in the fourteenth century and housed the family of Robert the Bruce, a Scottish king and national hero. The castle is located in Stirlingshire and is also available for special events. For those wanting a stay in Scotland hotel on the west coast, a stay in the Abbot’s Brae Hotel is a great choice. This hotel is much smaller than the grand old castles, resembling a large country manor instead.

The Cameron House on Loch Lomond and Inverlochy Castle are two more great hotels in Scotland for your stay. Inverlochy Castle was built as a private estate in 1863 and rests at the base of Ben Nevis Mountain. It offers sporting activities, like trout fishing. The Cameron House is near Loch Lomond, a lake between the Highland peaks and the Scotland Central Lowlands with its own restaurant on the grounds.
