Scotland vacation
Large comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and Cath was so accommodating. Talked us through the bus route and told us where the good pubs were. Thanks.

My son and I stayed at Alba House for a month. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend. Cath and her family are great people. I also loved Rocky, Zelda and Maisy. Cath can tell you anything you need to know about Scotland. I so enjoyed getting to know her during our stay. She is a lovely human being and works very hard. Her place is charming, clean and comfortable. We stayed on the third floor and the one picture is out of the sky light window in the bathroom. The only thing I would say is don't pick the third floor if you don't like climbing stairs. 😁 I just thought of it as burning calories.

Great place to stay
Alba House was a very nice Bed & Breakfast. The best part of our stay was the service and hospitality shown by the Owner who served us a wonderful breakfast and who did everything she could to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Owner was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were clean and spacious. Not too far from city centre. Would definitely stay there again when we go to Edinburgh.
