Previously operated as a hotel and now as a B&B, Robyn and Mena have been welcoming guests since 1988. Over that time they have collected awards and accolades including The Good Hotel Guide 2015 Editor’s Choice Award – Golf Hotel

In 2008, The Dower House won the prestigious Good Hotel Guide Cesar Award to become The Scottish Guesthouse of the Year.  The same year Robyn and Mena were invited to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace for their contribution and services to the British hospitality industry.

The Dower House was featured in The Sunday Telegraph’s Cosiest Hotels for Winter.

“What better way to start the day than with one of the Aitchisons’ gold-standard Scottish breakfasts, including porridge and eggs from their own hens? Mena and Robyn, a talented self-taught chef, have been honing their skills at this charming country house hotel for the past 21 years. The house, in the Georgian cottage-ornée style, has an elegant red-walled dining room, four traditional bedrooms and mature well-tended grounds.” Fiona Duncan – The Sunday Telegraph.

The guest house is also featured in many guide books including Karen Brown, Peter Irvine’s Scotland The Best, The Good Food Guide, Frommer’s and Trip Advisor.
