Delicious B&B Breakfast
As you would expect at an award-winning guest house, our breakfast showcases the best of Scottish produce. Our menu combines tried and trusted B&B favourites with an opportunity to try something different. We have been awarded Quality Assured Status under the “Taste our Best” scheme run by Visit Scotland.
Our regular menu (see below) caters for a wide variety of tastes and dietary requirements. We have many vegetarian options and regularly adapt our menu to cater to food allergies or intolerances such as gluten-free and dairy-free diets. Just let us know in advance if you have any particular requirements and we will ensure we have tasty options to keep you satisfied.
Our breakfast buffet includes a tasty range of treats to get you started. In addition to freshly prepared fruit salads, we have a selection of natural and fruit yoghurts as well as all the usual breakfast cereals (including gluten-free options). To compliment this usual range of buffet choices we also have a selection of dried fruits and nuts. Susan also often makes a super tasty granola, which can also be made gluten-free with advance notice.
To top off the buffet selection, Susan also regularly bakes a homemade loaf which could be anything from the ever popular multi-seed loaf to more ambitious creations such as maple and pecan loaf, spiced fruit loaf or even apricot and ginger loaf. Susan gives all the credit to the breadmaking machine, but the flavour combinations are the real star of the show.
Help yourself to the following:
A selection of Cereals, Low Fat and Creamy Yoghurts
Fresh Fruit Salad, Homemade Granola, Dried Fruits and Nuts
The Traditional Full Scottish Breakfast
Of course, we have an enviable reputation for our excellent traditional Full Scottish Breakfast where you can choose from Highland free-range eggs (scrambled, fried or poached), gluten-free pork sausages (or we have superb vegetarian alternatives), dry cured back bacon, Scottish black pudding, mushrooms, tomato and baked beans.
All hot breakfasts are cooked to order so it is delivered to you fresh, hot and tasty.
Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs & Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
Whilst the full Scottish breakfast is still highly popular, by far our two most popular breakfast choices are Scottish Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs served with a toasted bagel, and Cheesy Scrambled Eggs (made with mature cheddar) served with an English Muffin.
Exciting and Tasty Daily Specials

Local & Seasonal Produce
We use local food produce wherever possible, and try to include seasonal produce in our menu choices to enable you to enjoy the best Scottish ingredients during your stay.
Our eggs are all free-range from a farm overlooking the Moray coast. Bacon, sausages and black pudding are usually sourced from Scottish butchers or food producers, and we serve Scottish Smoked Salmon.
All cakes, sweet breakfast loaves and muffins are baked by Susan at home, and the shortbread provided in your room is also home-made. Please ask if you would like a recipe to take home, or you can “like” our Facebook page, where new recipes are posted every month or so! You will also find more recipes in Susan’s Recipes.
If you would like to try some traditional Scottish dishes during your stay in the Highlands please ask, and we will let you know what to look out for on the menus. There is a folder with sample menus from local restaurants in the hallway, and some information about local food specialities.
