The eviivo awards, considered “the Oscars of independent accommodation”, are now in their seventh year and aim to highlight the best bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, boutique hotels, pubs and restaurants with rooms and other independent accommodation. the country has to offer.

Karen Twist, owner of the Kinlochewe Hotel, said: ‘It would mean the world to me. Every day I work so hard to make sure people have the best possible experience when they visit us and to be recognized for that would be amazing after such a difficult and uncertain few years.

Covid has hit the independent real estate industry hard, and we’re thrilled to see these brave owners staying strong and coming out the other side.
“Hosting the eviivo awards again after a two-year hiatus allows us to give these amazing people and their accommodations a moment in the spotlight they truly deserve, and we are thrilled to be able to recognize all of their hard work.
