Are you planning weekend break in Scotland some time soon? Looking for some ideas on what this weekend could entail?

With ‘staycations’ becoming increasingly popular around the UK in recent years, why not take a look at this great article written by Josh Lew for travel inspiration website Tripify which outlines 6 fantastic ideas for weekend breaks in Scotland.

There’s something on the list for everyone. Whether you want to spend some time explore the delights of our biggest cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, indulge in a Scotch whisky tour, explore our vast scenery behind the wheel, go for a lake getaway or spend a few nights in a castle – there’s so much on offer, the hardest decision might be deciding on what you leave out on your weekend away!

Personally, I’d love to tick off the ‘I’ve stayed in a castle’ box on my bucket list. Castles aren’t the only unique places you can book accommodation for in Scotland – our website has a number of options for unique accommodation, such as churches, lighthouses working farms and more!
