Best hotels for walking in Scotland
Steeped in stories of baronets and scandalous affairs, Susannah and Stuart Macpherson’s ‘beautiful Georgian house’ is today a ‘simply lovely hotel’ standing in extensive gardens ‘magnificent with mature trees’.
Long praised for the generous hospitality of its hosts, Derek and Celia Kitchingman, this ‘very quiet’ 19th-century tweed mill-turned-restaurant-with-rooms on the banks of the River Gynack is gaining attention, too, for its food.
Nick and Nikki Horne run their ‘top-class hotel’ in a ‘fantastic location’ on the shores of Loch Linnhe, where the ‘beautiful vista’ stretches across the water to the islands and beyond.
A ‘cosy spot’ in a remote position overlooking Langass sea loch, Amanda and Niall Leveson Gower’s family-friendly former sporting lodge is ideal for guests in search of fresh air and ‘fabulous views’.

Dog friendly hotels and hearty food for walking holidays in Scotland
There are few places as dramatic and diversely picturesque as Scotland’s countryside, making it a gift for walking holidays, whichever part you choose to visit. Rolling hills and moorland, gentle valleys and iconic historic locations to explore, make the Scottish Borders the perfect place for a romantic getaway, while the scenic Highlands see some spectacular hotels nestled amongst the majestic curves of the earth and glistening lochs.
Places such as The Airds Hotel on Loch Linnhe, with the Morvern mountains beyond, prove to not only have wonderful walking possibilities, but also excellent gastronomy as well, attracting foodies from around the country. Alternatively, the Pool House is amongst Scotland’s historic hotels with 300 years of stories to tell and pursuits such a playing the piano or selecting novels from the library juxtaposed with adventures rock climbing or mountaineering in the highland landscape.
A haven for dog walkers looking to stretch the legs of tireless pets, or whiskey connoisseurs in search for something to set the palette a tingling, Scotland is also an endless treasure trove of unique hotel locations such as The Colonsay, accessed by short wander up a single track road from the ferry on the Isle of Colonsay where you’re greeted by an unpretentious and informal inn with a buzzy bar populated with locally brewed island beer and malt whiskies. There’s even the odd music evening to add extra fuel to the log fires.
The coastal walks in Scotland really are something of literary proportions as well – take the remote west side of Shetland where Burrastow House resides for example. Here you can watch the Arctic terns tumble above the Wester Sound – few things can match such a natural spectacle.
