Hoping the locals chime in here.
I've heard from more seasoned traveler friends that they have toured Scotland without reservations for nightly accommodations. We will be renting a car and touring mostly whisky inspired locations the first two weeks of May 2020. Since I may be easily distracted by the plethora of sites along the way, I don't want to be tied to a set schedule.
Main question: How to locals actually feel about travelers seeking last minute rooms? I'm not really looking for hotels; more like B&Bs.
Most likely route is:
Arrive in either Glasgow or Edinburgh
North to Edradour
Continuing to Elgin area for Macallan, Strathisla, and GlenDronach
Have to see Loch Ness
Over to Talisker on Skye
Down to Oban, then over to Islay
Over to Arran
Then back to Glasgow or Edinburgh
Thanks for any input!
