About the company

Desperate Dan of DundeeDupplin152 bed and breakfast was established in 2017.  We designed the King and Superking ensuite rooms the way we would like to find them. So the beds are superb quality, as is the bed linen, carpets and drapes.

The complimentary room and toilet items are plentiful and for more choice, you can help yourself to espresso, more teas and fresh fruit in the dining room.

The property retains its Victorian charm, with understated decor. The rooms are light and airy. Original features sit alongside antiques and miscellaneous paraphernalia found at French antique markets, so a little shabby chic turns up here and there.

The dining room is a traditional Scots. The solid, wooden table seats four, with solid, wooden armchairs to relax in and enjoy your breakfast or supper.

Fiona is our Chef. She will be cooking your breakfast and supper too, should you wish to dine in house.

Bryan is front of house and enjoys looking after our guests.

To the left of the front door is a seating area in the garden, where you can relax with a coffee, or bring out your breakfast.  The garden is yours to enjoy.
