Highlands Bed and Breakfast

bed_and_breakfast.jpgWhat more quintessential place to stay in the beautiful and romantic Scottish Highlands than a delightful bed and breakfast?  There are literally hundreds of these accommodations throughout the highlands, all offering their own unique styles and hospitality.  A bed and breakfast is the perfect combination of self-catering and hotel service, as generally the only meal offered will be a lovely, delicious breakfast according to your own tastes.  However, even that is changing these days, and some B & B’s are happy to offer dinner, as well.  You only need to ask your hosts to see what type of service they provide.  Bed and breakfasts are well situated for all types of travel, weather you are making a short stay for business or are travelling on holiday.  For those who like to make many stops throughout the Highlands and to cover a lot of ground, bed and breakfasts are perfect, as you can stay in a different one every night, if you so choose.  Bed and breakfast hosts are very used to guests staying only a night or two at a time. 
Staying in a bed and breakfast is another way to get to know the area, as well.  It is a more personal experience where you will get to know your hosts, and they will share with you their knowledge of the region you are exploring.  Bed and breakfasts are usually located within someone’s house or farm, and they are very economical choices for the traveler who is budget conscious.  For a reasonable price, you will receive clean, warm accommodation plus a superb breakfast.  Rooms vary greatly from one bed and breakfast to the next, so it is advisable that you take into consideration what type of accommodation you need.  Generally, rooms are offered as singles, twins, or doubles, although once in awhile you may find a king.  Not all bed and breakfast rooms are en suite, that is, containing their own private bathrooms.  You may have to share with another room or two down the hall.  Nevertheless, you will find that seasoned bed and breakfast guests are quite used to this and are very considerate and polite towards their neighbours. 

All of the rooms will be clean and tidy, and generally, a bed and breakfast will be comprise of anywhere between two and five bedrooms.  Many bed and breakfasts will provide a guests’ lounge—a place with a television, possible Internet access, books, games, and the like.  Your room will generally be well appointed with a tea and coffee service, toiletries, an iron, and possibly a mini fridge.  It is wise to ask before booking what types of amenities are included.  Bed and breakfast hosts are usually very friendly and warm, and will go out of their way to provide their guests with a comfortable night’s stay followed by a hearty, delicious breakfast. 
Location is key with bed and breakfast accommodation, and you will be able to find a good B & B in whatever type of environment you seek.  Bed and breakfasts are found in abundance in Scottish Highland villages and towns, as well as the city of Inverness, but they are also found all throughout the most remote areas of the north, for those seeking a more rural experience.  Although bed and breakfasts are a budget option for many travelers, the owners take pride in offering exemplary service, local knowledge, cleanliness, and a hearty breakfast, wherever their location. 
Choose a Scottish Highlands bed and breakfast for your travel accommodation if you are looking for a warm, hospitable atmosphere; clean, cosy rooms; friendly and knowledgeable hosts; and a delicious, nourishing breakfast—all at the right price!
