Local B&B flying the flag for National B&B Week

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? In a country where tourism is a major industry isn’t that something worth celebrating?

Ardno House B&B near Ballachulish certainly thinks so – they’re participating in this year’s National B&B Week from 16th to 22nd March. And, inspired by VisitScotland’s, Year of Scotland’s Coasts and Waters they shall be supporting two rescue charities with their special offer.

For each guest that books direct through their website to stay during National B&B Week 2020 they shall be donating 15% of the booking value shared equally between the RNLI and Glencoe Mountain Rescue.

Robert and Morag Whiteley, owners and operators at Ardno House said, “We are happy to highlight National B&B Week. The more B&Bs who get involved and help to raise the profile of UK B&B’s and the quality of service we all offer the better.

Asked about the choice of charities to support this year, they continued, “It’s a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation and support for these wonderful charities. Their search and rescue operations in Scottish seas and lochs are invaluable to help keep our visitors safe whilst they get out and about to enjoy the grandeur of the Highlands.”

Ardno House B&B are members of Discover Glencoe a local marketing association which represents members throughout south Lochaber, a spokesperson from Discover Glencoe said. “National B&B Week is a fresh initiative aimed at promoting this essential, independent sector of our accommodation provision. Celebrating the quality and variety of B&Bs who are so very important in this area and in other rural areas throughout the UK. We are delighted that one of our members are among the Scottish B&Bs participating.”

National B&B Day was created in 2018 and as the initial event was such a great success, in 2019 it grew to a full week dedicated to showcasing the UK’s B&Bs. In 2020 from 16th to 22nd March the flag will be flying again for B&Bs across the UK, to raise awareness of the hard work of independent hosts and hoteliers and their incredible contribution to the hospitality industry.
