We found the Kenmuir on our first visit to the area last Easter (2014) and enjoyed it so much we returned on this holiday. We ate in the bar with out 4-year-old as the dog is (quite rightly) not allowed in the restaurant. Food is good and reasonably priced; landlord very friendly and they have real-ale on tap. Menu could... More

For anyone looking for accommodation on the Portpatrick - New Luce section of the walk, we would thoroughly recommend the Kenmuir Arms Hotel. Food and accommodation were excellent - very homely. The owners couldn't have been... More

We stayed for two night's at The Kenmuir Arms and it was a very pleasant surprise. The hotel is superb value; we payed £60 per room per night b&b for a double room which was small but sufficient with a small en-suite. The rooms and the hotel are decorated in a traditional style which suites the building and the village.... More

The food was brilliant from a varied menu and at a very resonable price. The bar is cozy and has well kept real ale as well as the usual beers. There is a... More
