This was our first stop on our Scotland trip this October 2015, we enjoyed Jaynes hospitality so much we made it our last stop as well before heading back home to Manchester. The accommodation has a small car park, and is on a quiet road. The room was comfortable and big enough for the two of us and our Greyhound.... More

We stayed here on our walk on the John Muir trail. Jean Marc and his wife were very welcoming and entertaining. We arrived exhausted in the rain but we were made to feel very welcome straight away. The place is small (2 guest rooms on the first floor) but the rooms are welcoming, clean, and warm. We arranged to eat... More

The rooms are spacious and clean. The place is easy to find and the welcome very warm. There are plenty of places to see and eat within a short drive so this guest house makes a perfect base for exploring the area. The wall-sized map in the breakfast room really helps in planning. And breakfast? Well worth the 400 mile... More

A warm welcome from Jean Marc when we woke him up on arrival! Comfy bed in a basic room with a great shower. Excellent breakfast and some added raconteur banter with the cheerful Jean Marc, who also makes a fantastic espresso if you ask. Does what it says on the tin.

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
