The first trade body representing thousands of bed and breakfast and guest house owners across Scotland has been launched.

The Scottish Bed & Breakfast Association (SBBA) was unveiled at the Guest Scotland conference for tourism accommodation and retail businesses.

Association chairman David Weston said: “Scotland’s B&Bs are world-class, and now have their own trade association, the SBBA – which will inform, support and represent Scottish B&Bs and guest houses, while also remaining fully affiliated with the UK B&B Association.

“We will be working with the Scottish Government, the Scottish Tourism Alliance and others to champion Scottish B&Bs and fight their corner.”

The Scottish Bed & Breakfast Association is a member of the Scottish Tourism Alliance. More information is available from www.scottishbandbassociation.org
