Historic Hotels - Hand-picked Heritage Rated Accommodation

We love Scotland's rich history and culture. If your idea of fine accommodation is a Georgian town house hotel overlooking Edinburgh Castle, or a remote Highland country house hotel, you'll like our Heritage Rating system for accommodation. 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?
