Covid 19

Powdermills Bed and Breakfast has had to alter its operational procedures to ensure social distancing and reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

The following new procedures have been developed in line with the Scottish Government guidelines published on 11 September 2020 and supersedes advice for the re-opening of the hospitality industry on 16th July 2020.

It now has become mandatory that masks should be worn outside the entrance and in the corridors when walking through the Bed & Breakfast.

Of course, this does not apply when sitting at the breakfast table and in your bedroom.


When you arrive at Powdermills Bed and Breakfast park your car and proceed to the front door where John and Sue will be waiting to greet you. Please wear your face mask. Directly in front of you there is a hand sanitising station. Please clean your hands. There is another sanitising station in the Garden Room and the Breakfast Room for use. There are markers on the floor two meters apart showing where to stand. John and Sue will be wearing masks when interacting with guests. This is for our guest’s safety. We will show you to your room, keeping socially distant. Please fill out the registration form, as this a requirement of the Scottish Government guidelines for COVID-19 and leave on the Dresser at the front door.

is now mandatory that you wear your masks when outside your bedroom or are sitting at Breakfast. We will still offer Sue’s renown Cakes and Scones on arrival, but we will make drinks for you and deliver this to the Garden Room rather than have the buffet style that we operated previously. We will not have Tea and Coffee making in the Garden Room or the bedrooms. However, we will be happy to make a coffee, tea, hot chocolate when you wish. Please just ring the bell on the Dresser or knock on the lounge door to get our attention. Breakfast

We have divided Breakfast between the Garden Room and the Breakfast Room to ensure social distancing. We will serve you in much the same way apart we will provide individual buffets for cereals and fruit . Guests are asked to fill out breakfast forms the night before indicating a time slot. We will have the meal ready for you.


There are no special requirements of guests when leaving. We will deep clean the Garden Room and the Bedrooms between guests. At all times please follow the procedures, wear a mask, always keep your distance and thoroughly wash your hands.

We apologise for all this inconvenience but this is necessary to protect ourselves and our guests from Co-vid 19.

Thank you for your cooperation and we hope you have an enjoyable stay.

Johnny and Sue
