A relaxed private dining experience, using locally sourced freshest ingredients... The Breakfast room has separate dining tables, set in a Mulberry tartan design décor. Breakfast is cooked to order… you can choose from, a full Scottish to smoked salmon with a creamy scrambled egg. Not to mention the selection of home-made jams and marmalades.
Breakfast is served between 8.30 and 9.30ish (well you are on holiday! I like to word “ish”)
The Haystoun Suite
The Haystoun Suite is named after the country sporting estate located just up the road from the house. The suite has a traditional feel with high ceilings, detailed cornice, fireplace and chandelier whilst retaining a cosy intimate atmosphere, receiving the sun in the morning / mid-afternoon
The Bonnington Suite
The Bonnington Suite is named after the road at the back of the house.
The suite has a contemporary feel as it is designed using grey and white tones whilst still retaining original Victorian features such as the fireplace, cornice and chandelier. The suite is west facing and receives the late afternoon sun.

Moving my family, Karen and Georgie (our 18 month old daughter) into Kingsmuir House on January 15th 2004 it was our turn to add our history to the house. We had a vison to turn the clock back and save the house and call it our home. Over an eight year programme of works, we starting bringing our idea’s to life, with the normal up and downs of a large restoration “what have we taken on” moments! When you’re living in one room for a year and cooking on two camping stoves and a couple of microwaves the vison does become a little blurry.
We are now sitting in a very privileged place with guests from all over the world coming to stay and relax in our beautiful home and enjoying the warmth of the very best in Scottish hospitality at the award winning Kingsmuir House B&B.
