Our stay at Alton Albany Farm spoiled us for all other B&Bs. It may have been the wonderful and attentive hosts, Alasdair and Andrea, or it may have been the restored spacious farmhouse with its mix of rugged stone buildings and tastefully restored interior (with a huge room and super comfy bed). One morning, after a delicious breakfast, we found a great local treat - the Fairy Knowe Trail just a short walk from Barr Village. If you enjoy hiking or cycling, this would ba a great area for a weekend trip. We went to Scotland to unwind and experience the countryside and Alton Albany and Barr Village gave us that.
