Scotland's Best B&Bs


With its wide variety of terrain, Scotland has something for everyone. From stunning walks by the coast or lochs to paths through forests and fields, or hill and mountain hikes for the more adventurous. 
There are also dozens of waymarked longer distance trails such as those listed below where you can explore more miles or simply walk along the sections of your choice.

Stay with Scotland's Best B&Bs and explore some of Scotland's Great Trails! Many of our B&Bs are part of the Walkers Welcome scheme by VisitScotland and they can offer places to dry your kit if you get caught out in the rain. Some can also arrange drop off / pick up if you are needing transport to / from your chosen walking route.

If you are bringing your canine companions, check out our Pet Friendly B&Bs.
