Alton Albany Farm B&B was hands down the best B&B I stayed in during my three months in Europe. Before I even left the States, I contacted Alasdair a few times for questions on directions and travel to Barr. He was extremely helpful and even called a few taxis in the area and sent me an estimate and their phone... More

We stayed way back at the end of July on a tour of South Ayrshire, one of the lovelier and less well traveled parts of Scotland in high summer and all the better for it. And Alton Albany lived up to its surrounds, and was one of the favourites of our three week tour. A charmingly proportioned house with simply... More

We were only there for one night on our journey home but I could have spent a week in this lovely place. It was very peaceful and surrounded by glorious countryside. We were welcomed by Alisdair who lit the fire and made us tea and produced scones and jam and chocolate cake - really welcome after a long drive. Our... More

Tucked away in quiet peacefulness is the beautiful Alton Abbey Farm, complete with fields and a river. It is an elegant, beautifully furnished and very cozy and comfortable delight. Andrea and Alasdair are the warmest, most welcoming hosts one could wish for and we would most definitely like to return. The breakfast is very good and Alasdair's Scottish oats were... More

Stayed for a night at the end of summer and throughly enjoyed ourselves. The setting is beautiful and the accommodation is top quality. The breakfast was possibly the best we have had. Could not fault the place and will definitely be back (sooner rather than later!).

Andrea and Alasdair are the nicest, most congenial hosts a traveler could wish for. My traveling companions and I stayed at Alton Albany Farm for three nights and it was a complete delight.

We spent two nights here whilst attending the Commonwealth Games. Cannot recommend it too highly. Alasdair and Andrea are the perfect hosts and are genuinely pleased to have guests staying in their home. The house is historic and beautifully restored. Our room was really comfortable, with fresh coffee and milk left in a vacuum flask for us. We were able... More

This is a prefect place to unwind - a warm and friendly welcome, a comfortable room in a lovely old house in a beautiful part of the country and the most delicious meals.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Alton Albany Farm is a very comfortable riverside Farmhouse B&B in a peaceful, picturesque valley a short walk from the pretty conservation village of Barr, on the edge of the Galloway Forest and Dark Sky Park. The Stinchar River runs along the edge of the grounds whilst the Albany Burn runs through our orchard. There is unspoilt walking and rambling in stunning scenery, mountain biking, cycling, fishing and birdwatching within easy reach. Beaches nearby with views to Ailsa Craig and the Western Isles. Glasgow is less than one and a half hours drive and Ayr just 40 minutes. The ferries to and from Ireland all depart from Cairnryan which is less than an hour away by car. ... more   less
