What to bring?



We are checking into the pre-booked Aberdeen central SYHA youth hostel for £15 per person for the 1 night.

(Unicorn Tours has pre-booked and pre-paid 9 spaces at the hostel already, so as to be able to offer and guarantee the running of this tour – you don’t have to worry about arranging the accommodation yourself, you just pay us. However if you rather prefer some alternative accommodation, we offer you to opt out and you are then free to chose any other accommodation of your choice for those nights)

The cost per person for the dormitory bed per night is £15 in addition to the tour cost.

(provided you tell us at least a week in advance, that you have booked yourself some alternative accommodation, for example a private B&B, that is fine, but I would need to know a week beforehand, so I can cancel your hostel space off)

Accommodation on all of our special tours (2 days & longer):

 We pre-book and guarantee accommodation for all 8 passengers on all our special tours.

The pre-booked and guaranteed accommodation is  a general rule is budget dormitory youth hostel bunk-bed type accommodation in a central and convenient location and depending on where and when typically costs between £12 – £25 per person per night.

We always give you the option to opt-out and find your own private B&B or hotel accommodation nearby, in which case you should advise us early, so we can release those pre-booked bed-spaces.

The tour throughout the day will remain the same, no matter if we pick you up in the morning /drop you off at night at a 5* hotel or hostel, this allows you to pay as little or as much for your accommodation as you like.

Check for additional accommodation info.
