Welcome to Dallars Bed &
Dallars B&B is in the East Wing of Dallars House. We
have two spacious and luxurious rooms, both with en-suites. We have named the Double room Auchenskeigh, after the name of the original Castle on this
site, and the Twin/Double room St Kitts, after the island in the West Indies where Sir William met his young bride. The room rates should start at £70,
but at the moment we have an introductory price of £60 prpn, including a full and fine breakfast. Stay for three nights or more and we'll give you a
We welcome all guests to Dallars with tea of their choice, or cafetiere coffee, and fresh homemade
cakes or scones, all served in the elegant Drawing Room - or the Garden if the weather permits! Children are also welcome, but must be 5yrs or older.
Dallars is a fine Georgian 'small country house', as described by Rosemary Hannah in her book
'The Grand Designer' about the Third Marquess of Bute, and dates from the late 18th century. It is set in lovely grounds, surrounded by woodland - a
tranquil oasis! Although both rooms are light and airy they have a cosy homely feel to them. Each room has a radio alarm, TV/DVD, free WiFi and
tea/coffee making facility with complimentary homemade shortbread. There is ample seating so you can relax and unwind in the privacy of your room if you
We are happy to book a table for you at one of the nearby restaurants, and can arrange
transport with a local taxi service if you'd rather not drive.
The Main Drive is deliberately 'pot holey' to act as a traffic calming device as there are horses and dog walkers about - please drive slowly!
The building has been divided to form three separate dwellings, but retains the
attractive features of the original house. It is also known as 'Dollars', possibly after the currency on St Kitts in the 1700s. There is ample, safe and secure parking on
the front gravel.
Dallars B & B, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, is near the M77, and is ideally located for access
to Glasgow and Prestwick Airports, Ayr, and Troon. Many first class Golf Courses are within easy reach. We are in the heart of Robert Burns
country, and Sir Alexander Fleming, who discovered Penicillin, was born near Darvel, just 10 miles north! There are many other local attractions not far away. Even Stirling and Edinburgh can be reached in just over an hour by car.
Remember, the CW Games in Glasgow next year, will only be just up the road! If you are interested in the Ryder Cup,
Gleneagles is less than an hour and a half away.
We have a strict no-smoking policy.
