Our plans are shaping up for our tour of Scotland between May 21st and June 3rd. We will arrive in Edinburgh by train the evening of the 21st and spend two full days in Edinburgh before picking up a rental car in central Edinburgh on the morning of May 24th. The rooms in Edinburgh are already reserved and paid for.
So my question is this. We'd like not to reserve any rooms the rest of the trip with the exception of the night of June 2nd before we fly home on the 3rd. We'd like to just follow our nose and end up where we end up. Can we get a room for a night in Scotland, without too much hassle and too much expense. How easy will it be to find a room for $150/GBP 92 (maximum) per night on a consistent basis?
My plan would be to research various locations along the likely itinerary and have about 5 choices per location with phone numbers which I would have in a small notebook with me. Or is it a better plan to book rooms in advance?
Thanks for sharing your opinions and any insights you might have.
