Tucked away down a cobbled causeway the stunning Dundonald Guesthouse has been restored to offer guests luxury, rest and refreshment in the centre of historic and beautiful Culross. With two separate, private rooms on offer, this marvellous guest house is ideal for couples who want a relaxing, comfy break in Fife.
The guesthouse has been offering respite to travellers for 170 years and recent renovations have maintained all of its charm and character with style and comfort at its heart. High ceilings and traditional corbels and cornicing has been restored or reinstated and large windows with deep sills allow natural light to pour in and fill every corner. Moving up through three floors, the guesthouse stairway is one of the owner's favourite features. Original bannisters and spindles have been restored and thoughtfully decorated in shades which highlight curves and profiles.
The accommodation comprises of two king suites which are both booked separately. Both suites boast equally lovely views over the pretty red-tiled roofs, across the River Forth and to the Pentland Hills beyond. Named after the dragon-slaying Saint Serf, Serfs is a relaxing room to idle time away where guests enjoy the stunning views with a drink from the in room honesty bar. Wooden floors are strewn with sheepskin rugs, hand-picked art work covers the walls, and there's a king sized bed complete with a tufted mattress. The room has also been furnished with hand picked vintage pieces making it a delightful room to come back to after rewarding days exploring the local area.
Kentigerns, the second but equally impressive suite, has soft furnishings that add a flourish of colour to the room's calming colour palette. Both suites have modern en suite bathrooms where guests can enjoy a luxurious shower with complimentary toiletries, waffle bath robes and fluffy bath towels. Kentigerns offers guests views of glorious sunrises, so take your time enjoying a morning coffee while taking the first rays of the day.
Breakfast at The Guesthouse is served in the dining room and guests can fill up on homemade and seasonal produce, breads and pastries, fresh fruit, and a lovely selection of eggs, smoked meats and salmon with Scottish cheeses.
Culross is home to its own palace, with its tiny rooms, passageways and painted ceilings, its a great place to spend an afternoon. Perhaps follow it with hot tea and freshly baked scones at Bessie Bar Cafe. The Red Lion Inn is recommended for those looking for a drink, some good pub grub and Scottish hospitality. If you wish to venture slightly further afield the vibrant capital city of Edinburgh is just a short drive away with a whole host of things to see and do!
£160 per room per night including breakfast.
High Season Friday 23rd December to Monday 2nd January minimum stay of 2 nights. Please contact for our festive rates.

My partner and I spent a whole weekend in this beautiful guesthouse. We were looking for some relaxation and comfort and we couldn't ask for a better solution than the Dundonald. Laura has been a fantastic host and she made us feel welcome from the moment we entered the cottage. Prior to our arrival, I let Laura know that I am vegan and she promptly ensured me this could be easily accommodated. And I couldn't have asked for a more delicious breakfast. I cannot recommend this place enough! Worth the trip :)

I could not recommend The Dundonald enough! What an amazing, special place this is. Laura our host made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived and we were stunned by the beautiful interiors and delicious food and wine we had. I wish we stayed longer! Highly highly recommend!

Booked the Dundonald for one night to celebrate my partner’s birthday. Couldn’t fault our night here - beautiful room which was absolutely spotless, so many well-thought out details and a delicious breakfast too. Would highly recommend!
