Bed and Breakfast

Hotels and Guest Houses

Self Catering



Self Catering, is also known as 'Vacation Rental' and  'Self Contained'

Guest House has all sorts of connotations, particularly if you come from the States.  In the UK, 'Guest House' generally means providers that are not quite a Hotel but more like a bed and breakfast in their approach, but having more than two letting bedrooms. Normally, also, they may provide an evening meal.  Most bed and breakfasts have a 'closed time' during the day but Guest Houses tend to be more flexible.  It is sometimes a good idea to enquire about facilities if you are not sure.

Grading.  A good proportion of the accommodation on the island is graded by the Scottish Tourist Board, now called 'Visit Scotland'.  The Board works on a 'Star' system with a one to five rating.  5 Star is 'Excellent' or 'World Class'. 

Some providers are not in the Tourist Board, for various reasons, and may be listed on this site.   I have no 'Quality Assurance Scheme' in place to judge quality.  People using this site must use their own judgement.
