“A warm welcome”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We chose the Albannach as a half way stop over on the way to the Isle of Skye and again on the return journey. Its ideally situated just off the A82 and about 1 mile from Loch Lomond Shores and Balloch where there are good places to eat. Jim and Margaret gave as and our dog a warm welcome on our arrival. They are both friendly,approachable and helpfull, Jim especially with advice on the local area.. Both rooms we stayed in were spacious,well decorated, clean, warm, well equipped and had comfortable beds. We would definitely recommend The Albannach B&B.

Jim and Margaret are running a great little B&B in Scotland.

We didn't have much of a chance to meet Margaret but Jim was very warm and we enjoyed chatting to him about the football and our travels so far.

Our room was very good, particularly the bathroom which was huge. The room was also clean and the beds were comfortable.

The wifi in our room was a bit hit and miss, but the access was perfect in the dining room where you could go at any time.

We'd happily recommend this B&B to others.

A first and very enjoyable experience: friendly staff, superb decoration, cleanliness of the room and excellent breakfast. We found Albannach by chance on the Internet and, after having spent three nights in three or four stars hotels throughout Scotland, we really appreciated the value for money in Albannach. We sure would recommend Albannach to everybody.

After a fortnight on Islay, 8 of us stopped over at Albannach (which we found by chance via an internet search) for three days. Despite being inundated with family, Jim and Margaret went out of their way to ensure that we had a great stay. The rooms were excellent - beautifully decorated and well kitted out. The breakfasts were superb - I couldn't find a fault if I tried! Jim was always ready to offer advice and assistance with local sights, driving directions and good places to eat. We will certainly be going back again!

First of all, a big thanks to Jim who was so warm and welcoming! We only had a few hours there and a very early flight the next morning, so unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy it for long. The rooms were spotless, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were luxurious. We found a great place for dinner in Balloch (the next town over) but didn't spend much time in Alexandria itself. It's not the most picturesque town but it's well situated convenient to the A82, Loch Lomond and Glasgow. Breakfast was plentiful and yummy!

Found this B & B as we were passing through and were warmly welcomed.
Excellent service and very friendly hosts. Rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean with luxurious towels and toiletries provided.
Breakfast was delicious and everything freshly cooked.
Would not hesitate in recommending. Thanks to Margaret & Jim for a delightful saty and we shall return

Room Tip: Room 1 on the ground floor was lovely, king size bed and large bath
