Do you run a B&B or Guest House in Scotland?
We are here to help, support, inform & represent YOU...

Join us today and help our campaign to secure better & fairer
funding from the Scottish Government



The Scottish Bed & Breakfast Association (SBBA) is the trade association for B&B, guest house and small independent hotel owners in Scotland. It is affiliated with the award-winning UK Bed & Breakfast Association, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. The SBBA was officially launched five years ago (in November 2016) at Guest Scotland in Edinburgh, and welcomed by the then Scottish Tourism Minister Fiona Hyslop MSP.

We are here to inform, support and represent our members, and to "fight your corner" with Governments (in Edinburgh, Westminster and until recently Brussels) and with regulators and the giant global tech platforms that dominate our industry. Current priorities include financial support for B&Bs and guesthouses, and opposing the damaging and misconceived "Short-Term Lets" Licensing scheme legislation - which will affect every small B&B in Scotland (in "Use Class 9" - ie houses).
