A LUXURY bed and breakfast provider has won a top tourist award – for the second year in a row.

The Waterside Rooms, at Dornock, has received a Taste Our Best Award fro m national tourism organisation VisitScotland.

Last year the establishment received gold star status, recognising consistent and exceptional quality within the accommodation.
And the latest achievement celebrates the quality of the food being served to guests whilst staying at the establishment, which offers private, luxury accommodation and boasts magnificent panoramic views over the Solway Estuary.
The Taste Our Best Award recognises businesses who are committed to using fresh, local produce, offering a quality breakfast, lunch or dining experience.
The scheme was introduced last year and has been awarded to over 500 businesses throughout Scotland, with many of these located in the region.
Nic and Julie Pearse, of Waterside Rooms, said: “We are delighted to receive this award. We take great pride in producing our meals from the best of local sources.
“The partnership with local producers and other providers throughout Scotland is greatly appreciated by our guests who enjoy the best of Scottish breakfasts here at the Waterside Rooms.”
And VisitScotland regional director Paula McDonald added: “Food and drink is an integral part of the tourism experience and Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink is the perfect opportunity to showcase local produce and provenance in Dumfries and Galloway.”
