For overnight guests a full cooked Scottish breakfast is offered, as well as continental breakfast options.

All tastes are catered for including vegetarian and special dietary requirements. Notice of any special dietary needs in advance would be helpful, so we can offer you the best eating experience.

Our local butchers supply the finest, leanest and tastiest cuts of Scotch beef and lamb. Fresh fish and game are also sourced locally where possible. Our other menu ingredients, including fine cheeses, come from local suppliers.

The Thistle Bistro is open nightly from May to October, and can be booked for larger dinner parties or Christmas dinners outwith these months. During the winter months, the same great food is available in the lounge bar.
