On 4 April 2012 Mike Macfadyen, Chairman, Liz Drysdale, Secretary and Helen Malcolm were invited to the opening by Prince Charles of the new Dumfries Lodge Guest House at Dumfries House. We were specially honoured to be introduced to him and he took time to speak to us together and individually about running a B&B and the work of the Association. He was also interested to hear about our new online bookable site www.ayrshirebandb.com.
Dumfries Lodge has asked to join ABBA and we look forward to working with them and Dumfries House. The renovation of Dumfries Lodge over several weeks and the opening has been filmed for television to be shown on 28 May. Local press and photographers were present, so all in all great publicity for ABBA.
