Breakfasts are a big deal at 94DR. Paul is a trained chef and, with no lunches or dinners available to guests, he goes to town on the most important meal of the day. Dishes are prepared freshly every morning using seasonal, local and organic produce, and eaten in a lovely light conservatory at the back of the house, overlooking the guesthouse’s walled garden. A choice of freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, porridge and traditional Scottish breakfasts are always available, but Paul also rustles up a couple of daily specials.
