We also have handy pages listing Pet Friendly B&Bs and B&Bs which can offer Evening Meals.
Scotland's Best B&Bs are all visited bi-annually by VisitScotland Quality Assurance advisors usually on an incognito overnight stay. During their visit they sample the warmth of welcome, the food and the accommodation and the general efficiency with which their requirements are met. The Advisors award marks in over 40 different categories and only if an establishment achieves between 70 - 84% are they awarded the 4 Star grading: 5 Star Grading is only given to truly exceptional establishments who achieve over 85% in their assessment. To be a member of Scotland’s Best B&Bs an establishment must achieve marks of 78% or over.
Please note that VisitScotland Quality Assurance inspections have been on hold since 2020 due to Covid restrictions.
Two new awards were introduced over the last few years, a “Gold Award” for establishments who provide exceptionally high standards of hospitality and a 'Taste Our Best Award' which recognises and celebrates businesses providing locally sourced quality food and drink.
