Scotland in June

Is it necessary to book ahead for accommodation outside Edinburgh? We are driving through Loch Lomond area, Fort William, Inverness, Kenmore, Glen Lyon....

We would like the freedom to not book and stay longer in a place we like but are concerned that we might not find a hotel etc at short notice at this time of year.

Depends. When in June? Schools break up at the end of June but the last few days are a popular time for locals heading off on holiday.

Weekends will be trickier - especially in a small place if there's a highland games or a wedding on.

How many of you?

A couple or a big family needing 3 rooms?

How fussy are you? Will you accept anything that's left or are you particular?

3. Re: Scotland in June

with three couples I would definitely book ahead or you may find yourselves in different hotels, for just one room you could wing it, but not three in the same place.

I know this limits you to making plans but I personally prefer to know I have somewhere for the night, especially if you have had a full day and arrive later in the place you end up stopping for the night. I can think of nothing worse when I am feeling tired and just want to relax than traipsing from place to place looking for somewhere decent to stay then having to take somewhere I wouldn't have chosen simply because its the only option - but then that's just me!!

For 6 of you, get booking as soon as you know your plans

I work for the tourist board in Scotland and would DEFINATLEY advise booking ahead, the amount of travellers who turn up looking for accommodation, who end up dissappointed as they have to take whats left and sometimes where they end up is no where near where they originally wanted. Some b&b's are particularly small and may only have 2 or 3 rooms so if there are 6 of you get booking on Visit Scotland's accommodation website to avoid dissappointment.

I would advise booking at least 1 night in each destination if you want some flexibility, that way your b&b will be happy to offer you additional nights if they are not full or advise you of other b&b's in the area that have vacancies.
