Alba House, Edinburgh
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.
