As cheap as possible without it being sketchy, as I'm traveling with my family (two teens and a child). We are not opposed to camping in tents, but would like to be in a place we can interact with the locals.

    What about Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park - fairly easy to get to, beautiful scenery of lakes and mountains which inspired many literary and musical figures, so can be a cultural visit as well as an adventure out in nature.

    Another area could be Skye - romanticised as the place to where Bonnie Prince Charlie escaped by boat, rugged scenery and castles. Very beautiful place with small towns to visit, lakes, walks, views - fantastic place to go. 10 months ago

    The Shetland islands is also a thought. Lots of hiking, the cost of your ferry ticket includes lodging overnight (and you can bring your own meals on board), and try staying in a böd for as little as 10£ a night (Google this). We loved the Shetlands so much we're planning our next trip back. 10 months ago

    If you would like to interact with locals then I would suggest somewhere less frequented by tourists than the west coast and islands.Why not the coast of South West Scotland say, somewhere between Dumfries and Stranraer. The beaches and coastline walks are excellent. Plenty of the usual walks, castles, flora and fauna and Logan Botanical Gardens but cheaper than the more obvious locations. Also possible to take day trip to Belfast. 10 months ago

    The area around Callandar is very nice, with lots of less expensive bed and breakfasts. 10 months ago

    Suggest you look at or around the towns/villages along Scottish long distance hiking trails such as Great Glen Way or West Highland Way. Borders area around Melrose is also very nice. 10 months ago
