Breakfasts are truly special at Arduaine, bread is home baked in our own kitchen; wholemeal bread and white ‘Farmhouse’ bread - delicious! Follow your tastebuds during a leisurely breakfast, start off with a choice of different juices before you indulge yourself with Arduaine's speciality, the Farmer's Breakfast which is amazingly popular amongst our guests, or the traditional Scottish Breakfast with award-winning local sausages or choose, if you prefer, a lighter option. Another favourite of our guests is Porridge "David's style", cooked in the old-fashioned way on the hob.  click here for our Breakfast menu

Diets:  We cater for special diets such as those in need of a wheat- and gluten free celiac diet: the breakfast includes home baked ‘real’ bread - gluten free, of course, as well as porridge without oats and also muesli and cereals, all gluten free. A gluten free packed lunch is available, if you wish. All prepared with insider knowledge by your celiac hostess. For diabetics we always have special breakfast items available: unsalted butter, marmalade / preserves with no added sugar. - Lactose free diet: non dairy soya milk is available, if you wish.  -  Please advise, when booking.
