The accommodation provided is either in Scottish Tourist Board graded B&B establishments or in accommodation inspected by ourselves. For the most part we use guest houses, farmhouses or private houses: the emphasis is on a friendly welcome, good quality facilities and a hearty breakfast. Prices are based on two persons sharing a twin/double room. Single Bookings are welcome but will normally incur a supplement to cover any increased room rates. Family rooms consisting of one double and one single bed or one double bed and 2 single beds will be provided if available. Private facilities can be provided at most locations. For prices of other grades of accommodation including Hotels and Budget Hostels please enquire at our office. Evening meals are available at some B&Bs or are readily available nearby. We will advise when prior booking is necessary.
A luggage carrying service is available on our tours. The price varies with the distance and complexity of the route. It is per group, based on a party of one to four persons. Excess luggage can be left with ourselves to be collected at the end of the tour.
