Inns

What is an inn?

Most of Scotland’s traditional inns date back centuries – to the days when people had to use a horse and stagecoach to get around – and come complete with vivid histories and traditional architecture.

In days gone by travellers would make overnight stops at inns along their route so you’ll find traditional coaching inns or drovers inns (as they were traditionally known) located throughout the length and breadth of Scotland, including some of the country’s busiest locations, tranquil lochside settings and island paradises.

What can I expect at an inn?

  • Bed and breakfast accommodation in a traditional inn or pub setting.
  • A bar and restaurant that is also open to non-residents.
  • Food provided at lunchtime and in the evening.
