Need to unwind in a hot tub for under £35? Visit Scotland.
1. This beautiful flat in the West End of Glasgow.
Yes, you really get this entire, well-decorated little flat for £30 a night and for two people, which is way cheaper than a hotel. It’s only five minutes by train from the SSE Hydro arena, so it’s a great option if you’re in Glasgow for a Saturday night gig.
2. This converted stable in rural Perthshire
This absolutely gorgeous studio cottage in a converted smithy is completely self-contained with just £30 per night for 2 guests. The owners will leave you fresh eggs from their own hens every morning, plus its only 10 miles from the charming town of Perth.
3. Jane Ann’s Bothy on the Isle of Gometra.
This rustic, charming converted bothy on the remote Isle of Gometra is completely off-grid in just £27 per night for 4 guests, so you’ll need to use candles and lamps in the evening, or light a fire…which is pretty romantic, when you come to think about it.
4. Thar an Altain, Balquhidder
If you’re looking for fairytale charm at a fraction of the price of a typical cottage, come to this amazing hand-made wooden hut in the Highlands in just £35 per night for two guests. It looks out over Loch Doine, and it’s basically a hobbit-house.
5. This stunning summer house in Fife.
This garden retreat overlooks a pretty pond in the lovely Fife countryside. It’s only a 20-minute drive from the pretty, historic town of St. Andrews, and has all the facilities you need for a comfortable, cosy getaway in just £28 a night for 2 guests.
6. And this off-grid eco-hut (with resident cat) on Mull.
This small but perfectly formed cabin sits in the grounds of a 13-acre working croft. It’s insulated, secluded, has a wood-burning stove, a double bed, and most importantly it also has Fudge the cat. Shut up and take my (small amount of) money i.e. £35 per night for 2 guests.
7. This vintage VW camper in the Highlands.
This (static) camper van is sited on an acre of land next to Culloden Moor. It’s small but cozy and has a fire pit, outdoor seating area, and you can use the owner’s house if you want a bath or just a change of scenery in just £35 per night for 2 guests.
8. This entire flat in central Edinburgh.
This fancy, a well-appointed studio is just five minutes walk from Haymarket train station, it’s been recently modernized and is decked out with hotel-quality linen and towels in just £35 per night for 3 guests. It’s crazy good value, in other words.
9. This cozy chalet with a hot tub in Alloa.
This adorable chalet actually has its own hot tub, and it’s been cleverly kitted out with a fridge and even a TV. It’s like a mini luxury hotel in £30 per night for 2 guests. You’ll be in bunk beds rather than a double, but that just adds to the fun.
10. This stone cottage in Gatehouse of Fleet.
This comfortable, pretty holiday home is in the heart of the scenic Girthon Valley, and just one mile from Gatehouse of Fleet, a pretty Dumfriesshire village in just £35 per night for 2 people. It has a patio, double bed, garden, and it’s basically an epic bargain.
11. This converted horse box on the Isle of Iona.
This horse box on the stunning Isle of Iona has been fitted out with wooden floors, a comfortable double bed, a stove, and twinkling fairy lights in just £35 per night for 2 people. It has everything you need, all you have to do is show up and enjoy the view.
12. This oak glamping pod in Plockton.
In just £25 per night for 2 guests, this idyllic little hillside camping pod is part of a rare breed farm in the Highlands, so you’ll be surrounded by free-roaming goats, llamas, hens, raccoons, and even a donkey. The owners also provide free butter, milk, and beer.
