You thoughts on this route will be appreciated. Andy
Some hotels I have found. Since some of us from south are sharing a room to split the costs I have looked at double rooms for us (therefore per person under £150 for 3 nights). Do the locations look ok i.e. the town where we aim to stop near each night?
Of course if people are not going to split the cost due to going with missus or family etc. it works out a bit pricy therefore they may want to look at more options. I am still looking for more accommodation options in the lower price range.
The Inn on Loch Lomond, Argyll, Luss, G83 8PD, United Kingdom (Room for 2 = £114)
Kyle Hotel, Main Street, Kyle of Lochalsh, IV40 8AB, United Kingdom (Room for 2 = £115)
Premier Inn Falkirk (Larbert), Glenbervie Business Park, Bellsd**e Road, Larbert, FK5 4RX, (Room for 2 = £67)
Will look to book rooms by Jan with a cancellation policy.
