Doune Guest House

Welcome to St Andrews!

COVID-19 UPDATE (25.09.2020): 

We are delighted to be welcoming guests again after the long wait! 


Your safety remains our greatest priority and we are taking a number of measures to ensure any risk is minimised during your stay. You will be asked to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing in public areas. We will not enter occupied rooms in the next weeks but we will provide any top ups as required. Our breakfast service is also modified and we may ask some guests to enjoy it in their rooms.

Unfortunately as further restrictions came into force in Scotland, we now also cannot accommodate guests from different households in the same room. IF YOUR PARTY CONSISTS OF MORE THAN ONE HOUSEHOLD, PLEASE BOOK SEPARATE ROOMS OR CONTACT US TO DISCUSS ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS. 

Even though we are not frequenting public areas for the time being, we as always remain ready if we can be of any help at all! 


Luckily golf is not a contact sport...
