Budget accommodation Camping Caravans and Hostels
Low budget holidays are not necessarily low status, on the contrary, people who choose to holiday on a shoestring usually do so because that is what the prefer, because they love the next to nature type of holidays, the most popular budget accommodation being camping and caravans, bunkhouses and wild camping. Some prefer this kind of getaway because it enables them to have a deeper appreciation for nature.
Bunkhouse and Hostel - Bunkhouse accommodation is popular with students and travellers on the move. It's a great way to get to meet fellow travellers, get a hot shower a good meal and a comfortable bed after a hard day hiking, biking or paddling. There are some excellent bunkhouses around Loch Ness and standards are becoming comparable to many forms of higher priced accommodation so if you really like to travel light without a large wallet this could be for you.
Caravans and Camping - For the seasoned backpackers, campers and caravaners out there this is a section you will love and we know there's nothing on earth that would ever tempt you to choose an alternative type of holiday accommodation. We the authors have spent many, many nights under canvas in the Highlands in all seasons. Some prefer static caravans, and large continental type of frame tents both can be very luxurious and comfortable.
Wild country camping - When the weather is fine this is a fabulous way to spend time in Scotland, either backpacking and carrying everything with you, or in a motor-home. Most motor homes tend to use camp sites but many still prefer to find a nice out of the way beauty spot and setup camp. Wild country camping is still possible in the Highlands, but we remind you to leave no trace behind, and follow the country code . This has to be the cheapest holiday possible but can be the most rewarding and enjoyable of all.
