Ok, you answered the question by providing no information. Since you seem to enjoy shouting, let's try this again:

WHAT IS MID PRICE RANGE? DEFINE IN DOLLARS or POUNDS.

And HOW MANY PEOPLE?

I am sorry I did not mean to have all cap when I wrote my message. I was in a rush and didn't notice my message was in all capitals. I know that means shouting on an email. Sorry again.

I will be traveling in August. How much would a good mid price B&B or hotel cost in Stirling or Glasgow? I know in Edinburgh it is much more expensive during this time period.

We would like a pleasant stay in these two areas. We like rooms that are a good size not to cozy. If it is in a B&B it should have a friendly host, have a yummy breakfast, be clean and a short walking distance from sights. We will not have a car. I would like the price range to be around $125.00 to $175.00.

Thanks

You should be able to get a room within that price range in the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow. Very central located and totally refurbished within the last three years.

Maybe I'm being thick here -- but why do you care what is 'mid-priced'? Isn't im more important to find something in your budget, whether or not it is some nebulous 'mid-priced (mid priced for whom anyway?)

Lecturing font off

Now - re your budget? The £ is down a fair bit right now (but who knows where it will be next August). So right now $125 = a little over £80. £75-£85 is about minimum for nice-ish B&Bs though you can find cheaper ones in some really rural villages.

$175 = about £115 which is a bit above 'mid range'. So yes, you'll be able to find some decent rooms for that. Re room size - that is more an issue in hotels. B&Bs won't have a standard size anywhere. They are rooms in private homes - so some have very large rooms, some have small rooms, some have both . . . and it really doesn't affect rooms rates much. What you pay is based mostly on amenities and if it is in a very desirable tourist area - not on room size so much. If room size is very important to you, you'll have to contact each B&B you are considering and asking the room's dimensions (unless it is spelled out on their website)
