Why Book a Luxury Hotel in Scotland?

Hotel in Scotland

Without a doubt, Scotland offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the United Kingdom and it is therefore a very popular destination for visitors, both from the UK and overseas, whether they are camping or staying in a hotel in Scotland. With its varied landscape, including mountains and lochs, the Scottish vistas are sure to take your breath away.

Accommodation For Your Holiday

In order to get the best from your Scottish break, however, it is important to book the right type of accommodation for your holiday. Where you choose to stay may depend on your own personal situation. Some people, especially younger ones, opt to camp out in the beautiful countryside, whilst others prefer hotel based holidays. Whilst camping may get you in the fresh air though, there is nothing like putting your feet up and sleeping in a comfortable bed after a long day on the Scottish hillsides.

Beautiful Places in Scotland

Although there are many beautiful places in Scotland, including cities such as Edinburgh, there is little doubt that to get the best out of your time in this beautiful country, you need to do a significant amount of walking. Whether this is up a mountainous path or round a calm loch, perhaps hoping to get a glimpse of ‘Nessie’, it is fairly certain that you are likely to put a fair number of miles in. For some, it may not matter that they are returning to a cold, and possibly damp, tent, but for most people, the benefit of a hotel stay is that they can return from their walks, take a nice hot shower before changing to go down to dinner in the hotels’ excellent restaurants.

Many of the hotels also have entertainment taking place each evening, or you may prefer a short walk to a local pub to sample some of the local delicacies and try a dram or too of malt whisky that has been produced locally.

The standard of hotels can, of course, vary quite widely but after a hard days walking, it does make sense to ensure that you are comfortable on your return by selecting a luxury holiday for your stay. It is quite possible that you will find a luxury hotel in Scotland that even has its own golf course. Even if they don’t, most will be able to advise you of the best places to play golf.

Tourist Attractions

Some hotels in Scotland will also arrange trips to some of the local beauty spots and tourist attractions which means that you can simply relax and enjoy the castles, Scottish islands and other destinations that you may be taken to. This may be especially useful for drivers who are not used to a mountainous landscape. Driving on some Scottish roads can be quite trying for those unfamiliar with them.

There is little doubt though, that, to get the best from Scotland, you need to be able to unwind at the end of each day and prepare yourself, ready to feel fresh and ready for the following day’s Scottish adventure, and what better way to do that than to book yourself into one of Scotland’s beautiful luxury hotels.
