Our guest bedrooms – a king-sized double and a comfortably-furnished twin– are decorated in contemporary style, yet also contain original Victorian fireplaces and snug lovingly-restored window shutters. You’ll find ample supplies of tea and coffee-making equipment, some local treats, a hair-dryer, a bath-robe and lovely views.
McMurdoston is fully centrally heated and has numerous open fires and log-burners, but we’re aware some guests like full control of their climate – for you chillier mortals, both rooms provide controllable radiators, hot water bottles and copious spare bedding, ensuring complete comfort, without the embarrassment of having to ask.
A large family bathroom next door to the double room offers a generous bath, modern shower, plenty of towels and complimentary toiletries. A second private shower-room is also available so that all our guests can enjoy private facilities.
On arrival we’ll welcome you with a drink and a sample of Sarah’s home-baking.
Breakfast is served between 7 and 9 a.m. starting with cereal and fresh fruit. Follow this with a platter of locally-sourced Scottish fare or a lighter Continental-style meal, accompanied by a selection of teas, coffee and juices. You’ll eat in our atmospheric dining room or in the light-flooded hall, from which you’ll enjoy stunning views and which provides an ideal opportunity for bird-watchers.
We’ll endeavour to accommodate special dietary requirements, and we’ll even make you a packed lunch if you give us some notice.
Guests have exclusive use of a comfortable sitting room with cosy wood-burner. Here you can watch Freeview TV and play DVDs. Board games and puzzles are provided along with free WiFi. Numerous reference books, leaflets and maps will enable you to look up any special finds or plan your next day’s trip.
We offer lockable storage for bikes, a drying room for wet clothes and ample parking.
