Hi, I'm a teacher in Madeira Island and me and some colleagues of mine are thinking  visiting Scotland. We are currently teaching some students with special needs and since it's the first time they are learning English and possibly the last, we thought :"What about a visit to the UK?" We don´t have any money yet, but we are working on it. 
So, please let us know what are the best places to visit and the possible  accommodations for ten people.
Thank you.

    Hi @Teresa and thanks for your enquiry.
    There are many places to visit in Scotland, from cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow to famous spots like Loch Ness and Inverness, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, St Andrews, Isle of Skye and less well known places too! It is a beautiful country with stunning coutryside and a rich heritage - lots of castles and ancient places of worship (cathedrals and abbeys), whisky distilleries, golf, tartan etc.
    Why not have a look at our website Visitscotland for some inspiration? You can download e-brochures too. Also check out Historic Scotland and National Trust to find out about historical sites.
    With regards to accommodation, if you don't have much money, you might want to stay in youth hostels or in self-catering accommodation - some of them are big enough for 10 people. Please have a look at the accommodation section of our website where you can search and book places.
    You don't mention how you would get around but the cheapest would be to use Citylink buses - you can buy an explorer pass for 3, 5, or 8 days.
    I hope you manage to get the funding and that you will have a great holiday in Scotland - don't hesitate to use the network of iCentres for help.
