These are individual hotels, country house hotels, boutique hotels, castles, inns & pubs, B&Bs and other 'accommodations' in Scotland that I have come across and think are worth checking out.
Clearly this list is far from comprehensive. As it expands it may be sub-divided down into smaller categories.
|Airds Hotel, The
||Family run, 4-star hotel on the shores of Loch Linnhe with fine cuisine (and awards to prove it).

With a full length glass wall, the king size bed takes full advantage of the panoramic views from its elevated position on the mezzanine level, and you can gaze out on the highlands from the double tub in the luxury bathroom.
