Overview

Fully updated and revised, The Scottish Bed & Breakfast Book will appeal to travelers who want to experience a comfortable and distinctive stay in Scotland. Author and Glasgow native June Skinner Sawyers has selected more than two hundred establishments, complete with information on transportation, tourist boards, and local attractions.

Chosen for ambiance, historic appeal, and period charm, as well as literary connections and the personalities of the owners themselves, these establishments include guesthouses, country inns, small hotels, cottages, and farms scattered throughout the diverse landscape of Scotland, from the Lowlands to the Highlands, from the Western Isles to Orkney and Shetland.

Ms. Sawyers offers detailed comments on each lodging's decor, menu, and hosts, as well as advice on what to explore nearby. From descriptions of the opulent Witchery in Edinburgh to the romantic Peat Inn in Fife, from the gracious Kirklee Hotel in Glasgow to the cozy Glenderran in St. Andrews, this guide is an excellent tool for visitors with a variety of budgets looking for a more authentic, personable lodging experience.
