All are welcome to our home, Alton Albany Farm B&B. A comfortable and spacious riverside farmhouse in the quiet and picturesque Stinchar Valley, it is only a short walk from the pretty conservation village of Barr. I’m Alasdair and I was brought up in the Scottish Highlands, I’ll make sure there is a log fire burning in the grate and there will be a tray of tea or coffee with cakes ready and waiting for your arrival.
We have been inspected by Sawdays and are proud to be an accredited member
We also have some glowing reviews on Tripadvisor – do take a look
