Bed & Breakfasts and Guesthouses in Scotland

We love a B&B in Scotland - there's something special about the experience of staying in a private home or guesthouse in the UK, looked after by a friendly host. Whether you stay for just one night, or make the bed and breakfast your home for a week, wake up in a comfy bed and enjoy a delicious Scottish breakfast before heading out for the day to explore.

Why Choose a Guesthouse Or Bed & Breakfast in Scotland?

Guesthouses and bed & breakfasts in the UK offer:

  • Accommodation in a private house, usually run by the owner. With lots of personalised touches, great service and a warm welcome, make sure you make the most of your host and ask for their insider tips on places to visit, things to do, and walks in the area.
  • A traditional Scottish breakfast (haggis optional) or full continental, which will include cold meats, cheese, fresh fruit, and bakery items. There will be a vegetarian option and if you call ahead, most B&Bs cater for vegans and other dietary requirements. Some even serve evening meals. B&Bs and guesthouses do not usually provide facilities for you to cook for yourself.
  • Excellent facilities, which can include off-road parking, pet-friendly rooms, or handy storage for bikes or golf clubs. Your B&B might also offer laundry facilities.

Whilst both B&Bs and guesthouses offer a bed for the night and breakfast the next morning, B&Bs will usually host no more than six guests at one time, offering a personal touch to your stay. Guesthouses tend to be larger, with at least four bedrooms for guests.

Whether you are looking for a cheap bed and breakfast or a luxury guesthouse, we have accommodation to suit all budgets.

Cheap Bed & Breakfasts in Scotland

Looking for an affordable and practical stay in Scotland? Lots of guesthouses and bed & breakfasts in Scotland offer budget accommodation in beautiful buildings that are set in stunning locations.

All B&Bs and guesthouses offer a range of room types, including family rooms. However, budget guesthouses and cheap bed and breakfasts are more likely to have shared or private bathrooms, rather than an en-suite.

Offering a comfy bed for the night and a hearty breakfast to set you up for your day of exploring, a cheap bed and breakfast or guesthouse makes a great option for your trip to Scotland.

Luxury Bed & Breakfasts in Scotland

Looking for a really special stay? Scotland's boutique and luxury bed and breakfasts offer something a little extra, whether it's a prestigious location, glamorous interior, hot tubs or spa baths, panoramic views, or going the extra mile in service, why not treat yourself?

Love a bit of luxury?

  • Look out for the 'Taste Our Best' sign, this is an award given to businesses using only the finest and freshest Scottish produce - how about homemade scones, local jam and fresh cream on arrival?
  • Choose a restaurant with rooms - with fine dining right outside your door; there's no need to designate a driver for the night. With four and five-star rooms on-site, you're sure of a fabulous night's sleep after dinner.
  • Look out for B&Bs with gold stars or a prestigious Scottish Thistle Award, which celebrates excellence in Scottish tourism.

Whatever your budget, all of our graded B&Bs and guesthouses meet our quality assurance standards, so you can rest easy and be assured of a high-quality stay.
