All the rooms were renovated and private facilities
were installed just after we moved in, in 1998 and we have embarked
on a cycle of redecoration. The rooms share the names with the
places that have been important to both of us. All en-suite rooms
have a colour TV, bath robes, extra toiletries and an extensive
fair trade hospitality tray. We supply fresh milk (not UHT cartons)
for tea or coffee. Each room also has binoculars, and a guest folder
that we have prepared ourselves detailing all the different things
to do during your visit at Dunvalanree.
Room One, Kintail (where Alyson’s family
Room one has been set up for category one disabled but care has
been taken to ensure it does not feel clinical like some rooms
of this sort. Category one is for unassisted wheel chair users
and our room has been inspected as compliant by the Scottish Tourist
Board/VisitScotland. It has French doors out onto a small patio
furnished with a table and two chairs, popular with guests. It
has a double bed and an en-suite ‘walk in’ shower room.
Room Two, Langata (where Alan stayed as a boy)
Room two is a king size double, completely redecorated in 2006.
The en-suite bathroom has a shower over the bath. This room enjoys
a view across fields to Carradale Bay.
Room Three, Yealand (where Alan’s Granny
Room three can be either a twin or a super king double. The en-suite
bathroom has a shower over the bath. This room enjoys a view across
the bay at the front of the house to the golf course and the Arran
hills across the Kilbrannan Sound.
Room Six, Bunessan (the place Alan asked Alyson for the next dance)
Room six is a king size double at the front of the house so it
too enjoys views to the golf course and the Arran hills across
the Kilbrannan Sound. It has been decorated in a Charles Rennie
Macintosh style and has an en-suite shower room.
Room Seven, Woodcote (where the family lived before moving to Carradale)
Room seven overlooks the bay at the front of the house to the golf
course and the Arran hills across the Kilbrannan Sound. Redecorated
in 2005, it can be either a twin or a super king double and the
en suite bathroom has a bath with a shower.
Rooms Eight and Nine, Achnasheen (where Alyson’s dad is from)
and Loch Arkaig (where early holidays were enjoyed)
Rooms eight and nine look out over the back of the house to the
garden and the hill that used to be the wildlife reserve and share
a bathroom which also has a separate shower. The beds in room eight
can be converted into bunk beds and another bed put in when there
are three children in the party. We also have a cot available.
These rooms are popular with guests on a budget or singles who
do not wish to pay the single supplement.
The Dining Room
There are only eight tables, and the room was redecorated to compliment
the Art Deco stained and painted glass doors. We occasionally
host weddings, small celebrations with 24 sitting down to a five
course meal after the Champagne reception. Ask us for details.
Guests have the use of the lounge all day with tea/coffee available.
Soon after 7pm however, it is where guests gather, perhaps for
a pre-prandial drink, to choose dinner and chat about their day
exploring the nooks and crannies of the Mull of Kintyre.
