We’ve put together a guide to accommodation in Scotland for the August bank holiday, and the good news is they all cost less than £400.

Whether you’re looking for a final break away with the kids before the new school year or if you’re hoping for a relaxed weekend for two, we have you covered.

All prices are calculated for the bank holiday weekend and were accurate as of 18 August.

A room with a view. Two adults can stay in a double room at this hotel from £298 this bank holiday weekend. The room we’ve priced up has a view of Edinburgh from the window.  

The 19th-century hotel is in a good location with the city centre just 10 minutes away by car.
