Historic Hotels - Hand-picked Heritage Rated Accommodation

We love Scotland's rich history and culture.

We've poured over thousands of hotels in our directory and noted those hotels that offer more than just a room - they offer a taste of history! For an extra special experience of history, why not stay in an authentic Scottish Castle Hotel?
