accommodation in Perthshire, Scotland

Hello all,

We are going on a driving trip in Scotland, and my assignment is accomodation for the 8 of us in the Perthshire area. Our range is 100-200. Any suggestions?

1. Re: accommodation in Perthshire, Scotland

Can you be a bit clearer as to what it is exactly that you want? Are you looking for 4 rooms in a B&B for a total of £200 per night? How long will you be staying and at what time of year? It may be that a rental proeprty would work out more economical and convenient for a large group like this, but most places require a 7 night stay in peak summer season. If you give us more information we can give you better advice!

Is that £100-200?

Is that per person or for the 8 of you?

I love this place - wide range of accommodation to suit any price range: http://www.lochtay-vacations.co.uk/

I've stayed in everything from the tepees to Loch Tay House - all good fun in their own way. On site restaurant/pub and activity centre.
