Hotels in the Scottish Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are a sparsely populated area, with limited hotel resources. This is particularly the case in northwest Scotland, where hotels cannot easily cope with the tourist influx in the busy summer months, and may get booked up very early on. Advanced booking is often essential; and to be sure of getting what you want, very advanced booking is recommended.

Character, quality, value. The iHi directory is a selection of hotels chosen with care. The directory includes mostly quiet hotels with character offering good value for money, a selection of country hotels and town hotels, away from busy streets. For Scotland, iHi offers a carefully selected choice of good-value hotels, near the main tourist destinations and also in some quite remote spots in the Scottish Highlands.

Reservations / booking. iHi is an information website, not a booking platform.  To check prices and make bookings, you will leave iHi and be taken either to a hotel's own independent website, or to our partners   Hotels.com and Booking.com  where you can book and pay in English or in your own language. iHi has no booking software and takes no part in any booking process between third parties.

While Booking.com and hotels.com guarantee unbeatable rates, many smaller hotels have a fixed rate for their rooms, meaning that visitors will get the best rate whatever way they choose to book.

Cancellation, deposits and payment:

In most cases the online booking sites with which iHi is partnered allow free cancellation and do not require payment in advance. A credit card is normally required to secure a booking as a guarantee for the hotels in case visitors  book a room but do not show up. In most cases, guests will pay the hotel on arrival or on departure, according to each individual hotel's policy..
