Scottish Highlands Accommodation with WiFi

The Scottish Highlands are beautiful and remote—a wonderful place to get away from it all.  However, in this day and age, sometimes it’s not possible to leave everything behind when you travel or go on holiday.  If your situation requires you to stay in touch, don’t worry about the remoteness of the Scottish Highlands.  Many accommodations now have free Wi-Fi access, or Wi-Fi access for a small fee.  While doing all we can to maintain the historical and natural character of the Highlands, we realise that folks need to be able to stay in touch.  Your holiday in the Highlands does not need to be fraught with worry, wondering how you will keep up with the demands back home.  You can book into an accommodation with Wi-Fi and rest easy.

Wi-Fi is actually a trademark of the Wireless Fidelity Alliance, an international association of companies involved with wireless LAN technologies and products.  It is an industry term representing a type of wireless area network protocol based on the 802.11 IEEE network standard.  A wireless network uses radio waves to transmit data.  What this means for you is that you can expect to connect to broadband Internet at a decent rate of speed.  Whatever your reason for needing to stay connected to the Internet, many accommodations in the Scottish Highlands now offer Wi-Fi.  Sometimes, it is imperative for business that you have this access.  Other times, it’s just a great option for those travelling far from home.  For instance, you may wish to download your digital photos for the day and email them to your friends and family.  As well, having Wi-Fi access means that you can search for information and activities in the area in which you are staying, and even book online if you find something you’d like to pursue.  Wi-Fi really is a super tool for today’s traveler, and many hotels, bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and self-catering accommodations are recognizing that. 

If you desire Wi-Fi in your Scottish Highlands accommodation, just be sure to ask when booking.  It is also a good idea to find out if the accommodation charges any fees for this amenity.  Often, if an accommodation lists Wi-Fi as “available,” it means you can indeed access it, but you will have to pay for it.  Another option if you wish to stay connected is to find out if your accommodation has a guest computer in one of its public rooms.  This may not suffice if you need Internet for business purposes, but could be the perfect solution if you merely want to the option to stay in touch with friends and family while on holiday. 

Just remember, with very few exceptions, no location is too remote in the Scottish Highlands to offer Wi-Fi.  For example, Wi-Fi is part of the package in Bernisdale on the Isle of Skye.  Imagine spending your holiday in a self-catering cottage with views of the Cuillen Mountains, and still having access to the Internet!  Donmar Cottage in Bernisdale is a renovated three-bedroom croft house and offers free Wi-Fi.  Gypsy Cottage in the rolling farmland of Easter Ross is another self-catering accommodation which provides Wi-Fi, and it is only two miles from the beautiful beach at Balintore.  Near the Falls of Dochart in the heart of the Scottish Highlands you will find Cupar Cottage, a quaint stone-built house with all the charm of rustic Scotland, but also offering Wi-Fi.  Above the village of Aultbea in Ross-shire there sits a stone-built farmhouse dating back to 1882.  It is available for holiday lets, and has stunning sea views of Loch Ewe.  It also has Wi-Fi.  The list of holiday cottages with Wi-Fi is extensive.  All you have to do is ask while booking.   Be sure to consider holiday parks, lodges, and chalets as well, when you are looking for accommodation with Wi-Fi.  The Dornie Lodges in northwest Scotland offer Wi-Fi and are an excellent base for touring Skye and the northern Highlands. 

Bed and breakfasts and guesthouses are great options when looking for accommodation with Wi-Fi.  This is because the accommodation is often the family home, as well, and chances are they will have high-speed Internet access.  Corrour House in Aviemore is a beautiful, luxury 4-star bed and breakfast with Wi-Fi available.  As well, it is child-friendly and pet-friendly.  Kiltearn House is located in Evanton, Ross-shire in the northern Highlands.  It is a luxury guesthouse which is set in a spectacular location surrounded by gorgeous scenery.  It offers optional evening meals, and provides Wi-Fi as well.  Scarista Bed and Breakfast on the Isle of Harris is located in a former Georgian manse.  Here you will find the rugged remoteness of the Highlands, but with Wi-Fi available for all guests.  Tanglewood House in Ullapool is located on a headland above Loch Broom.  It offers cordon bleu dining and Wi-Fi access.  Again, there are many options for those wishing to stay in bed and breakfast or guesthouse accommodation and needing Wi-Fi access.

Virtually all hotels in this day and age will offer Wi-Fi, even the ones in the Scottish Highlands.  From budget to luxury hotel accommodation, chances are you will find Wi-Fi included or offered for a small fee.  Even the chains like Travelodge and Holiday Inn Express provide Wi-Fi.  Of course, if you are looking for ambiance and Highland style, then choose an individual hotel for its uniqueness.  Wi-Fi will most likely be included in the package. 

Remote and secluded the Scottish Highlands are, but they are also keeping pace with the technology of the day.  A wide variety of accommodation is available here in the Highlands of Scotland which include Wi-Fi access as a standard amenity.  Most others will offer it to you at a small fee.  Very few accommodations exist anymore that do not have this option.  Don’t feel you have to lose contact with business associates or even friends and family just because you are choosing the Highlands of Scotland for your next holiday.  When making your accommodation booking, simply ask or review their website to find out if they offer Wi-Fi access, then come along and enjoy the best of both worlds—staying technologically connected while enjoy the wilderness of the Scottish Highlands!
