Jayne and Jean Marc were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful. The location was quiet and peaceful despite being near a main road. The room was warm and comfortable with en-suite facilities. Breakfast was a treat with homemade crepes prepared and served by Jean Marc, our very own French chef. We found it difficult to leave despite the long journey... More

Jean Marc is a lovely cook and treated us to some amazing breakfast. The rooms were very warm and spacious with a large living room and self help kitchen. We were staying only for a night but had a lovely stopover. His place is about a 20min walk to town centre and a 6-8min drive by car. Highly recommend.

I have used this B&B time and time again for my visits to one of my favorite places in Britain over the last 2 years. The location is outstanding - the local scenery is mind blowing - with Loch Lomond only a stones throw away (10 min walk) and Ben Lomond is a 20 minute drive up the road. The... More

We stayed at Alba over August bank holiday for three nights. Jean-Marc was an excellent host and an even better chef. We were able to try all the breakfast options and even got to try some excellent wild mushrooms. We were given great advice on where to walk and eat in the area and even given a opportunity to visit... More

We were on our way to the West Coast, and just stopped off for the night. We arrived very late, but Jean-Marc did find us some nice place to eat anyway. And after that, he took us to the bar for some amazing live music, which stayed with us for many days afterwards. What a lovely way to start our... More

The most sweet, welcoming host - ever, Jean-Marc. If you want to enjoy one of the most beautiful landscapes and sceneries and - certainly - the best hospitality, go to Alba. Being a hotel professional myself, I was not only pleasantly surprised but overwhelmed! Alba brings people together and is my recommendation - for sure - if you are you... More

I stayed at the Alba apartments while at a wedding (Duck Bay Hotel, 5 minutes away by car) - Jean-Marc (the proprietor) was incredibly accommodating, with nothing being too much trouble. The room was clean and tidy with en-suite facilities and a very comfortable bed. I encountered a hot-water issue with the shower; however, Jean-Marc fixed the problem the moment... More

We found this B&B very accommodating indeed. Our room was lovely. Jean Marc was the perfect host and very helpful indeed in telling us about the surrounding area. Breakfast was excellent, with nice little extra finishing touches. We would definitely return here :-)
