The only problem is that everybody seems to have the same idea, meaning many of Scotland’s traditional destinations will be far busier than ususal.
This is just one of the reasons that the guaranteed peace and solitude offered by farm stays are becoming more popular.
The concept is simple – a farmer rents out spare rooms, buildings or custom-built holiday accomodation on remote farmland to those looking to get away from it all.
The farmer earns a bit of extra cash and you get a unique holiday where the only potentially noisy neighbours are the local livestock.
Here are 11 of the best farm stays available in Scotland once government Covid restrictions are eased.
