accomodations for someone who smokes, Inverness & Edinburgh?

My son will be joining me for part of my stay in Scotland. I'm booked into B&Bs but having lived in NY City for many years, he prefers something more impersonal; besides, HE SMOKES. He doesn't want to spend a fortune-any advice?

The new anti-smoking laws in the U.K., and other parts of Europe are making finding accommodation for smokers more and more difficult as many hotels, B&Bs, hostels and guesthouses are going totally smoke free for the benefit of guests and staff - it's not just restaurants and pubs that are prohibiting smoking indoors.

He doesn't want to spend a fortune and he's lived in NYC (where there are lots of hotels that have also gone totally smoke-free)? My advice: tell him to go outside and smoke. I'm a smoker myself by choice - if you really need your nicotine, you'll make due.

He'll have plenty of company among all the other smokers enjoying themselves outdoors in the streets of Europe.

P.S. I just sent an e-mail to the Premier Travel Inn Inverness, which Rick lists as having smoking rooms, but they responded that they no longer do.
