We started going here in the mid-1990s and had an intimate wedding reception for family and close friends at Kinnaird in 1997. It was then a very up-market hotel, open only part of the year and geared to shooting and fishing, and to discreet retreats for diplomats, bankers, and the like. Then the owner, Mrs Ward, retired and had the... More

We spent a lovely 2nights at this really interesting and different Hotel. Although it is very grand with fabulous decor it has a very relaxed and welcoming feel. Our room and bathroom were huge and well equipped with views across the garden. Food was excellent with a set 3course dinner, although initially we were a wee bit concerned about the... More

Just back from a second visit to Kinnaird Estate Guest House. It was every bit as good as the first trip. The staff are very welcoming and there's a lovely, relaxed feel about the whole place. The rooms are fantastically well equipped and very comfortable. Came here as a base to do some walking - lots of great walks in... More

The whole family took over this lovely house for a special birthday. We had an amazing time. It was like staying as a private guest on our own country estate. The bedrooms are huge and extremely comfortable. Shannon and her team got the level of service just right - friendly and unobtrusive. They helped us arrange some live music for... More

We first stayed at Kinnaird House when it was a grand 5 star hotel in the '90s. Now, it operates as a fantastic Guest House with wonderful service from Shannon the manager and Steve the chef. The rooms are as wonderful as ever, and breakfast and dinner is served in the most beautifully hand painted dining-room in Scotland (in my... More

Our children have been giving us a surprise destination to grand houses in Scotland as a Christmas present for several years now and this is definitely one of the best. On our arrival we received a very warm welcome from chef Steve who cooked our breakfast and evening meals for our two nights stay. The food was excellent, well presented... More

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with such a warm welcome, we were given a wee tour so we knew where to find everything before being taken to our room. The room was very large and comfortable, I have to say the bed was so large my hubby and I were lost in it. The bathroom again was... More

We returned for one night at Kinnaird Guest House this year. We were welcomed by Shannon like old friends. Dinner prepared by chef Erika was fantastic - seared scallops on black pudding, venison tenderloins, light-as-air Sticky Toffee Pudding. We had the same beautiful room as last year. The next day we moved in to one of several cottages available for... More

Beautiful hotel, wonderful service and great food! What more can you ask for? They even moved my mum and I to a room on the ground floor since she was starting to have a little difficulty with the stairs, and did it while we were out for the day - seamlessly. Great place!
