So you are looking for the perfect group accommodation in Scotland, so your family and/or friends can get together? We know how tough that can be at the best of times! Here’s our guide to choosing the best group accommodation to suit your needs.
Find Something Exclusive
It might be tempting to book multiple rooms in a hotel but group accommodation should be somewhere exclusive where you won’t be disturbed by other people. No matter the amount of people you have, you should be able to find a luxurious place to house you all. One such place is the Muckrach Country House – it is beside the Scottish village of Dulnain Bridge and can accommodate up to 22 guests.
We’ve included a map below to show you the location.
Find Something Within Budget
Whether all of the people invited are paying or a select few are footing the bill, it is important to choose group accommodation that suits your budget. The last thing you want to happen is finding out that certain people cannot afford their share of the bill. Nor do you want to be staying somewhere cheap and cheerful if you can get something a little more exciting for your budget.
Make A Plan
Put together a plan for what you will do when you are there. If you don’t plan on doing much, then a house or lodge in the middle of nowhere might be great for you all. But if you want to get out and do lots together, you will need something a little closer to human life. Wherever you stay in Scotland, there’ll no doubt be some gorgeous walks and outdoorsy things to do, however if you are looking for more organised fun, it could be a good idea to choose your accommodation close to a city.
Spread The Responsibility
Don’t let it be left all up to you to find somewhere to stay. You just know that if you do, someone will complain that they didn’t get a say or blame you if something unfortunately goes wrong. Give everyone old enough the opportunity to weigh in on the decisions such as where to stay, how much to spend, what you will do when there and how chores may be shared should you use the kitchen and laundry there. By sharing the responsibility, you avoid being the one all the family or all of your friends blame if anything does go wrong.
Make A ‘Money Pot’
If you have someone that you can trust explicitly, get everyone to put their share into a digital money pot. Not only can you use this for booking the group accommodation in the first place but it also works wonders when it comes to getting together money for food and any activities you might take part in when you are there. It is a great way to avoid arguments because everyone will have contributed their fair share.
These are just a few tips that we have to share with you for choosing the right group accommodation in Scotland for your needs. I love a group trip – whether that is with my friends or family.
