It is the perfect time of year for walking and cycling, and there are many fascinating events to attend. October brings the Aberfoyle Mushroom Festival, the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Contest, the International Scottish Storytelling Festival and the Highland Feast, which is the largest food and drink event of the year. In November, one can enjoy a fiddle festival, a scotch whisky festival, and St. Andrew's Week events.
Accommodations are plentiful, with many different types of Scotland hotels to choose from, for every preference and budget. Whether one's tastes run to family run bed and breakfasts, budget hotels, country house hotels, farmhouses, old historical hotels, cozy country cottages, youth hostels, metro hotels, luxury hotels, townhouse hotels or international resort hotels, there is something for everyone.
Prices for different types of Scotland hotels also vary considerably. Full service hotels with every amenity are more expensive than those that are more self catering. The location of the hotel also influences prices. Scotland hotels that are located in larger towns and cities tend to cost more than hotels in the countryside. The time of year is also a factor, with many establishments offering fall discounts, as business generally tends to slow down after the summer.
Hotels and activities for every taste and budget are plentiful in Scotland, especially in the autumn season.
