“A warm welcome”
Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile


We were very impressed with Margaret and Jim's warmth and helpfulness. Prior to arrival we advised them we were traveling by sleeper train from London to Glasgow overnight to visit relatives and so would be in town quite early. They told us we could leave our luggage at the b&b rather than lug it around. We really appreciated this as it made everything that much easier. Our room and ensuite were spacious and airy; clean, bright and comfortable. Breakfast was generous - my bowl of porridge was a great start to the day, and my husband's traditional Scottish fry up got him quite nostalgic for his childhood!
We'll certainly come back here when we return to visit the family next time.

This is, without doubt, the best B&B we have stayed in. The room was superbly equipped including a king size memory foam bed and superb ensuites. The breakfast was also fantastic. In addition, to all this the B&B is pet friendly and our two Westies thought it was great.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 1.

This B&B's made me write my 1st Tripadvisor review - it was that good! Our trip to the Albannach was just a quick weekend away from Glasgow to recharge the batteries and we couldn't have asked for more from a B&B. The location is perfect for exploring the Loch Lomond area and the Albannach provided secure parking for our motorbikes overnight. Jim & Margaret gave us a very friendly welcome and were full of ideas as to how to make the most of our visit - they couldn't have have done more to help us enjoy our stay with them. Our room provided a really comfortable retreat at the end of the day and a great nights sleep. I'd agree with other reviews that the breakfast was certainly second to none in our years of touring. Next time I think we'll bring the car, plus, the dog because he'd have loved it and been made very welcome too!

We stayed at Albannach B&B for a week with our son (6 month old) and it was a wonderful place to stay! Margaret and Jim were very helpful and we had everything we needed. It felt comfy, warm and very very friendly. Especially our son had so much fun, getting the free kitchen tour every morning, so his parents could enjoy the wonderful breakfast.
We definitely intend to come back to enjoy the friendly atmosphere once again.

After a week travelling in Scotland it was great to return once again to the warm welcome that Jim and Margaret give to all who are lucky enough to stay at Albannach.
The quality of the room and the food are second to none and we cannot recommend it too highly.
We will return !

The perfect place to stay when visiting the Loch Lomond area. Jim and Margaret are the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. The rooms are spacious, bright, comfortable and had everything we needed. We stayed for eleven nights as we were visiting family and it truly was our home away from home. Definately staying there again next time we go back.

My partner & I stayed at Jim & Margarets for the third time recently. We love the friendly atmosphere and are both made to feel very welcome each time we stay. The house is warm, cosy & friendly. The rooms are large, very well eqipped and very clean. The beds are so comfortable (we always have a good nights sleep) and the breakfast is very tasty and served with a smile - a true home-from-home. We have nothing but praise for Jim & Margaret and we both look forward to our next stay. This place is great value and is an excellent base for enjoying and exploring Loch Lomond & the Trossachs. We would thoroughly recommend the Albannach to everyone.
