Scotland flaunts an exciting range of accommodation options, which is far more than its fair share considering its small size. Impressive accommodation options at cheap price tags draws tourists all round the year. From adventure to fun trips and family holidays, there is a lot to explore in this country, which are well complimented by a host of budget accommodation options. From the majestic castles to the cottages and low priced hostels and self catering apartments, there is something for everyone.
Large self catering Scotland offers the best of both the worlds of some of the choicest places of tourist interest coupled with excellent self catering options that ensure a pleasant stay at easy prices. Self catering options are available in spacious castles, rustic estate lodges, and charming country cottages or farmhouses to suit your varied moods and needs. Hostels and dormitories are highly recommended for budget travelers and students. If hostelling is not for you then you can consider the innovative accommodation options of the halls of Residence in universities during summer vacations. These low cost accommodation options right at the city centre cost only a fraction of the regular accommodation options, which make them hugely popular among guests.
If you are looking for something adventurous, a jungle camp site or caravans would be great bets where you can stay amidst the wilderness and the stunning lochs and mountains of Scotland. You can choose from an array of exciting destinations including beaches and wooded grounds and glens. No matter whether you choose to stay in a homely cottage or a regal castle or a cozy hostel, a Scotland holiday experience would ensure a homely feeling which would allow you to chill out, kick off your shoes and have fun with the people who share your same interests.
The Scottish bed and breakfast and self catering business players can have a sigh of relief with the new fire and safety guidance which was published for public consultation Minister for Community Safety. This new proposal suggests a massive drop in the cost of the fire and safety requirements. The guidance ensures that the fire and safety requirements are applied consistently and even proportionately to the size of property which the previous guidance lacked.
Being a key revenue gainer for the tourism sector and property owners this new proposal has come up as a boon for the thriving Scottish Tourism Industry.
One more prime feature of this proposal is its benefits for both the owners of those cottages and even the guests by availing them proper safety from the ever-present risk of fire.
Meanwhile Scotland estimates about 7000 bed and breakfast and self catering cottage with the fire and safety requirements costing them £1,5376 as per previous guidance in comparison to the new guidance costing them only £1,090. Which means these cottages owners can reduce an excess burden of £14,286.
Well, I hope this new guidance comes up to be a real advantage to the Scotland tourism industry and will even attract more and more tourists and holiday seekers to go for these self catering cottages and B&B’s.
Salient feature : The new guidance developed to directly address these concerns will maintain fire safety levels while reducing the average investment in safety equipment by over 90 per cent.
