Temporary guest accommodations in Scotland are the focus of this portion of our guide.

These might include hotels, hostels, lodges, bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals, and self-catering options. Tenting and campervan sites could also be listed here, along with some unusual options, such as Scottish castles, former churches, working farms, lighthouses, and boat holidays.

Specific lodging choices may also be listed within the Cities & Towns category that represents the geographical location of the hotel or other accommodation.

Scottish residents might stay in a hotel or other accommodation, such as a campsite, while traveling within the country, while tourists will almost certainly make arrangements for a place to stay while in Scotland.

Scotland is a popular tourist destination. Although Scotland is not as heavily dependent upon tourism as some locations, tourism accounts for roughly five percent of its gross domestic product (GDP). The United States accounts for about twenty-five percent of Scotland's overseas visitors. Germany and France are close behind.

The main tourist season in Scotland is from April to October, and popular destinations include Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, Aberdeen, St. Andrews, Dundee, Perth, Inverness, Ayrshire, the Highlands, and the Hebrides, particularly the Isle of Skye, Perthshire, the Scottish Borders, Orkney, and Shetland.

People also visit Scotland on business. Edinburgh is the financial centre of Scotland, with several large finance firms based there. Scotland has relatively low unemployment, and its industries include heavy industry, shipbuilding, and whisky. Whisky, electronics, and financial services are primary exports.

Whatever the reason for travel, travelers need a place to stay while they are away from home, and these places are the focus of this category.
