As one of Europe’s favourite holiday destinations, Scotland offers a wide choice of places to stay. From budget campsites to high end hotels with just about everything in between. But what if there are lots of you going and you all want to stay in the same place? Group accommodation in Scotland is easily your best bet. Read on to discover why this option makes every bit of sense for your next holiday.

Better together

Whatever your reason for the holiday – a reunion, special occasion, family birthday or just because – being all together under the same roof will make it that much better. You could, of course, all stay at a hotel, but choosing group accommodation in Scotland will take the experience to another level.

Think of the lazy breakfasts, long lunches and evening meals, all at the same table. No rush to do anything or move on for anyone. Hours of play or just relaxing in the gardens together. Plus, the fun of deciding who gets which room or bagging the best for you because you arranged the booking.

Extra special

There are plenty of lovely options for self-catering, but if you choose group accommodation in Scotland you open the door to some extra special venues. Think historic homes, regal estates and best of all, charming castles. Imagine you (all) being king and queen of your very own castle, complete with all the legend and magic that Scottish castles simply ooze.

Turrets, great halls, lofty towers, minstrels’ galleries… all with their very own history, that’s so often dark and dashing in Scotland. And in the lap of luxury because the best castle stays really do provide accommodation fit for kings. Think four-posters, roll-top baths, antiques galore and maybe your very own croquet ground.

All that space

Group accommodation in Scotland always comes big on space. Large houses and castles easily cater for the hoards with room left over. You will all be able to sit at the same table and settle down in front of one big roaring fire. There’ll also be space for the children to hang out and on their own.

And importantly, because even the closest families can jar sometimes, you’ll be able get away from everyone. Take your pick from cosy sitting rooms, reading nooks or private arbours in the gardens where anyone can have a bit of down time.

Unusual and unique

Enjoy your own private woodlands and loch shoreline? Sleep in a room once used by the British royal family? And best of all, you’ll be the only ones there.
