Ingredients are sourced locally where possible, taking advantage of being located in some of the best farming country in Scotland and near to some of the leading Scottish craftsman-butchers. Cheeses are sourced from the new generation of cheese-makers which has flourished locally in recent years, and Skirling House grow as much of their own fruit and vegetables as possible, making preserves and baking bread. Even the eggs are from their own hens.
We use these ingredients with respect and sensitivity so that, while many of the classic dishes are presented in a fresh and insightful way, the cuisine remains true to its Scottish origins.
Skirling House was designed in 1908 by the Arts and Crafts architect Ramsay Traquair for Lord Carmichael. It sits by the village green at the heart of the peaceful Borders village of Skirling, near Biggar.
The house became his country retreat and contained the family's art collection which included a magnificent 16th century Florentine carved ceiling in the Drawing Room. Skirling House is the perfect stopover in comfortable surroundings.
