Could LOVE be in the air……?

Our Blind Date competition was a massive success last week with 6 gorgeous singles travelling from far and wide to compete for the attentions of Bob and Fern under the helpful instruction of our friend – the well known local publican Ian McLatchie…

Their dates take place on Thursday 22nd – listen out on Alive Radio FM 107.3, drive time with Graham Anderson to find out how our couples are getting on or follow us on facebook for updates afterwards….

Calling all singles

We still need contestants for our Blind Date Show.

Are you in the age range mid 20 – mid 40?  Are you single?  Like to meet people? Like to be spoiled? Take life not too seriously? Up for a laugh? Available at 9pm of Friday 16th and all day Thursday 22nd February (for the date)?  Then please get in touch with us – the dates have been provided by 5 local businesses and you WILL be pampered. 

In the News today –

Has the art of face to face conversation and romance died?  We hope not! We are hosting Blind Date (Cilla Black style) on Friday 16th of February plus Speed Dating for singles on Thursday 15th of February and Mr and Mrs for the married couples on Saturday 17th February.  Come along, leave your phones at home and let’s get some good old fashioned face to face talking going…

The Kinmount Bar… our newest idea….

Kinmount Bar – for outside functions.

We promise to keep the drink reasonably priced, have a great range in stock, super staff and top class customer care as well as trying to do a bit for the environment (by using paper straws, biodegradable rubbish sacks, glasses or recycled plastic… we know it’s not much, but we are trying and if anyone has any good green suggestions please let us know) 🙂

A string of fabulous musicians have already played at The Kinmount and we have loved them all, but we are excited at the prospect of introducing our customers to 4 gorgeous girls from Dumfries Community Choir.  The 4 recently formed an a capella  quartet and have quickly become a force to be reckoned with.   Meet L O K A on Friday 8th of September

After a few delays and a few grey hairs…..


Our long awaited brand spanking new kitchen opens on:

  • Friday 14th, serving 5pm till 8pm
  • Saturday 15th, serving noon till 8pm
  • Sunday 16th, serving noon till 8pm

Please book to avoid disappointment as we are only ready to open one dining room and maximum sitting is 20/24 people at a time.

Kitchen capers

Phase 1 in The Kinmount Hotel (ex Carrutherstown Hotel) refurbishment journey includes redecoration of both dining rooms, partial upgrade  of the bar area and a completely new kitchen from top to bottom.  We are now having to keep a sense of humour as the kitchen is taking ages to get right…

10 weeks in and the finishing touches are happening elsewhere right now. Watch out for announcements about our restaurant opening as we are sure that will be soon 🙂
