Skirling House was originally designed in 1908 as an aristocratic country retreat. Some of the family's original art collection still adorns the hotel to this day. The house has been converted to a luxury hotel, while retaining much of the character and style of the original home. Our cooking and presentation allow the fine, local ingredients to speak for themselves. We offer a set menu carefully planned to harmonise, contributing to an overall experience of great Scottish food. The menu changes daily to take account of availability of ingredients and guests' preferences.
Skirling House is a beautiful arts and crafts house situated in the lovely village of Skirling near Biggar. A high standard of comfort and elegance is complemented by excellent cuisine and polished, yet friendly, service. A delightful gem, tucked away on the fringes of the Borders.
Breast of Corn Fed Chicken with a Sorrel Sauce: "The neatly sliced chicken breast was draped in the sorrel and mustard sauce, with a portion of cabbage and potatoes on the side. An appetising aroma" "Soft, tender chicken, crammed with flavour, topped with a buttery sauce of the correct consistency, a well balanced blend of the herby sorrel and pungent mustard seeds." "A very enjoyable dish, with well chosen accompaniments."
