The Highlander is a family-owned 44 unit motel in Arlington, Virginia. Our history goes back to the early 1960's when William Bayne, Sr. with a number of close friends, purchased the motel, then known as the Scotsman. The motel offers some of the most affordable rates in the Washington DC metro area.
Over the years, we have taken great strides to update the motel. In 2008, we renovated all rooms to include new furniture, carpeting, beds, and in most rooms, a 32" LCD flat screen HD television.
