The Scottish B&B Association
is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, part of the UK-wide Bed & Breakfast Association
, with the following objectives:
To represent the interests
of members, and to campaign on behalf of those interests (for example, to the Scottish Government, the UK Government, regulatory bodies and the EU);
To provide information and support services
to members, to enable them to improve and develop their businesses;
To facilitate and enable the continuous professional development of the independent bed and breakfast sector in Scotland, and promote best practice;
To promote to the public the advantages of staying in independent bed and breakfast accommodation.
The Scottish Bed and Breakfast Association defines 'bed and breakfasts' as independent, owner-managed establishments not recognised as hotels, and offering overnight accommodation and breakfast on a 'per night' basis to paying guests. Our membership includes both B&Bs and guest houses, and householders letting rooms in their home to paying guests on a "B&B" basis.
