Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our selection of places to stay in Scotland – The South are all south of an imaginary line drawn between Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Among our favorites are The Witchery by the Castle, at the gates of the Edinburgh castle, with an excellent restaurant; and Knockinaam Lodge way to the south-west at Portpatrick, near Stranraer.

Scottish hotels are generally more expensive than their English counterparts – overheads such as rates are higher north of the border.

As elsewhere, our interesting and exceptional selection in Scotland – The South offers a range of guesthouses, inns, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
