    Dunollie reviews
    On arrival was a bit disappointed with the general tired appearance of the exterior. Setting is ideal for a quiet relaxing break although the access up the hill from Whiting Bay village is steep and tiring when walking. The interior could be made much more appealing and attractive and the pricing is not,in my opinion, reflected in the conditions although everything is clean. That said it would not necessarily put us off returning it is only an observation.
    Mr Hay - June 2019
    Cottage is in centre of Whiting Bay, a short but steep walk from pubs. We stayed for two weeks for our son’s wedding and we particularly appreciated having space and sufficient crockeryand cutlery to have 7 people for dinner and 9 for drinks. It is very comfortable and has great sea view. Kitchen is small and a bit dated but very well equipped for cooking. We recommend Felicity’s for dinner. Arran offers a great variety of walking and golfing, including several 9 hole courses. Trip to Holy Isle worth while.
    Dr Hogg - June 2019
    Lovely, well equipped cottage, well located in Whiting Bay, Steep lane to cottage would be difficult for those with walking issues but if a visitor has a car once at the cottage as it is all on one level it is an ideal retreat.
    Miss Wainwright - May 2019
    Plenty of space to relax in, although the kitchen is fairly small. However, the kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery etc. Good peaceful location with great view. Plenty of cafes, restaurants and takeaways nearby. Easy to access the whole of Arran.
    Mrs Mcneill - May 2019
    Second stay at Dunollie, this house is so peace full and comfortable with everything you may need. Like home from home. Easy to get to, Well maintained. Another rest full week. Recommend the Heritage Museum at the other side of Brodick. Fantastic little cafe there with lovely home bakes.
    Mrs Chetwynd - March 2019
    We enjoyed our stay, we were provided with everything we needed and it was clean, warm and comfortable. It is quite old in its style and furniture but that didn't matter, we felt very at home there. If I complained about anything it would have to be the wifi which really struggled from one room to the next but a minor point.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your review, and we’re glad you enjoyed staying at Dunollie. We’ll look into getting Wi-Fi extenders to improve the Wi-Fi coverage within the cottage."
    Mrs Martin - December 2018
    Dunollie was like home from home but on Isle of Arran. We four adults thoroughly enjoyed the layout, comfort, and oldie worldly feel of the place, just what we wanted, great views, very peaceful, If you are looking for modern up to date furnishings and decor etc, go somewhere else..Steep hill down to Whiting Bay, but No problem as we had the car.Due to being end of the season, most places were closed, but we expected that. We had great days out around Arran incorporating all the roads for different journeys..Lochranza Whiskey place, Brodick Brewery, Arran Heritage museam and small cafe, Lamlash Fine Foods store all open and definitely worth a visit.We highly recommend Dunollie for a holiday.
    Mr Chetwynd - November 2018
    This detached property is very private and has a very pleasant garden. The entrance is like an airlock where you can swap muddy boots for slippers or houseshoes. This was particularly useful as we had some bad weather and a dog. The kitchen, bedrooms, dining room and lounge are all well equipped very clean. The house is a little old fashioned in style which is an observation rather than a criticism. The only negative was when we came to take a shower in the evening of our arrival and found there were no towels. Maybe it says there are no towels in the small print somewhere. This is quite unusual and we would have brought them if we had known. Would be happy to stay there again.
    Owners Response: "We’re glad you enjoyed your stay, despite the weather! I’m sorry you didn’t see the small print about towels. It’s under the “Facilities” tab in the description of the property."
    Mr Marchal - October 2018
    Dunollie is in a good location not too far from the ferry terminal and within walking distance (if you don't mind a steep hill on the way back) from the beach, pubs, restaurants and local shops. It is very well equipped, the heating and hot water are efficient once switched on, and quiet and comfortable, if a little dated. We walked towards Glen Rosa, drove around the island, visited the grounds at Brodick Castle and the distillery. We were unable to visit Holy Island as they do not allow dogs. We had an excellent meal at Felicity's down the road one night and there were plenty of places for a light lunch. Highly recommended for a short break.
    Mrs Rae - Smith - September 2018
    The cottage was lovely well equipped fabulous garden and ideal location for exploring and good little restaurants nearby coast especially
    Mrs Cockett - August 2018
    Dunollie is spacious, well equipped and set in a lovely garden, although this is not entirely enclosed - no problem if you have well behaved dogs or children. It is at the top of a small hill which helps to provide great views of the coast.
    Prof Bell - June 2018
    Although the cottage would benefit from a little updating there was nothing to put me off staying here again. The rooms were all clean,very comfortable and warm. There were lovely views out to sea and it was a joy to sit out in the very large garden after a day exploring the island. Everything needed was provided including chairs for sitting on outside. The beach is only 100 yards from the cottage and there is a small carpark at the bottom of the hill if you do not fancy walking back up to the cottage after a stroll on the sea front.
    Mr Stevenson - June 2018
    Spent three lovely weeks at Dunollie. The cottage while being a bit dated was spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The garden is massive, lots of room and fantastic views. We thought the garden would be secure for Molly but sadly it lacked a gate although it looked as if there had been one at one time. This didn't stop us enjoying the facilities and the welcome wine. Housekeeping came in changed linen etc every week and even left a second bottle for our last week! Our only issue was the top of the drive which despite the truly amazing weather remained boggy and potholes full of water making it quite mucky....this is where porch was brilliant! The cleaner got stuck in it and hubby had to help dig her out so maybe filling the holes and some gravel would help! The wildlife was amazing, various birds, squirrels and rabbits were very entertaining especially during beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The hill up to Dunollie is quite steep but the views are worth it. We ate at Felicities a short walk along the road, lovely food and reasonable. We also ate at the Coast, food was ok but choice was limited as several options were off and there aren't too many to begin with. Sadly the Shore closed while we were there, they did nice Cake and coffee and was only place to pick up milk and bread. The Newsagent is so helpful and friendly and sells beautiful icecream. We certainly hope to return, hopefully next year, Molly loved it too and was happy to share garden with wildlife. Such a dog friendly cottage. There are loads of books and board games, thankfully we didn't need them as only couple damp days. Thank you so much for use of your cottage at a reasonable price, we didn't want to go home.
    Owners Response: "We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for letting us know about the driveway. It’s likely that the land drains might have to be renewed so we’ve asked a local company to take a look at what is needed. We’ll also update the cottage description to make sure that it is clear that the garden is not fully enclosed."
    Mrs Brown - May 2018
    The entrance porch area of the cottage smelt strongly of animal urine. The kitchen was only superficially clean with everything you touched feeling sticky - the kitchen cupboards especially were grimy. Several items in the house had 'do not use, out of order' signs on them and the place got very cold on cold nights. The fixtures and fittings were all old and generally worn out. We have stayed in a lot of cottages and several on Arran and this was the worst yet.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry that you found our cottage disappointing. I’ve raised your concerns with the property management team. Our housekeeper did clean prior to your arrival and noted a damp smell in the porch, but this is due to a known roof leak. We’re obtaining quotes for a repair currently. The kitchen is due for refurbishment at the end of the season, which will freshen up the fixtures and fittings. We haven’t yet been able to check for the signs you mention, although one at least is essential to let guests know that the dining room chimney has been capped."
    Mr Evans - April 2018
    Stayed at Dunollie for a week over Easter 2018. Nice spacious cottage with so much potential. Decor and furniture is quite dated. Heat is electric but works well and was appreciated on the cold days. The garden is really spacious but on the one sunny day we had in Arran there weren’t enough outdoor seats for four of us. The cottage is located at the top of a very steep hill, so be prepared to work those calf muscles. Lovely village and the dog loved the beach.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your feedback. We provided four new garden chairs last year so it is disappointing to hear that at least one has gone missing! We’ll provide more as soon as we can. Thank you again"
    Mrs Holland - March 2018
    Dunollie was a wonderful place to stay during my one-week visit to Arran. It's nicely located in Whiting Bay, as a 2min walk to the bus stop or a 10min walk to the nearby grocery shop. (I was there off-season and a lot of the closer cafes were closed, but there are plenty of options right at the bottom of the hill!) I didn't have a car, so I did get a serious daily workout going up and down that hill! :) The cottage is well stocked and very comfortable... the only small thing was that, again, I was there off-season in early March, so it was VERY cold at night. There are heaters throughout the place but I did find it quite chilly overnight, though it got better as the week went. Waking up to views of the sun rising over the Firth of Clyde was INCREDIBLE. Even the rainy days provided gorgeous, misty view of the water and Holy Isle. The cottage owners also did an excellent job providing pamphlets of information about local activities as well as helpful info about the cottage itself, and also had books on Arran's history, which I really enjoyed reading. I saw all parts of the island while there, as Dunollie provided a great access point for other areas. I took the bus to various sights across the island, including King's Caves in Blackwaterfoot, the whiskey distillery in Lochranza and a couple trips to Brodick for supplies. I was always happy to return to Whiting Bay, and really enjoyed the nearby hike to Glenashdale Falls & Giants' Graves. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful and well-located stay in Arran!
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. Apologies for the lack of extra bedding. It would seem that the extra duvets we provided a few years ago have gone walkabout, so we will be providing new winter-weight duvets shortly."
    Ms Pappin - March 2018
    Great dog friendly house - perfect for our first trip to Arran. We enjoyed the views and garden even in the variable weather in February. We enjoyed walks and exploring he island. The house was perfect for our needs and our contact Colin was very helpful. House perfectly clean. One suggestion for winter guests would be for warmer duvets or option of extra blankets!
    Mr And Mrs Appleby - February 2018
    Dunollie is a traditional bungalow with fantastic views of Whiting Bay. Owner allowed us to take 2 dogs and house had a fantastic garden for them. The property was clean and contained everything you need. Big regret was only booking 3 nights it was not long enough.
    Mr Seaton - January 2018
    The cottage was excellent,garden was good for the dogs . The bottle of wine was greatly appreciated on arrival
    Mr Hall - September 2017
    the cottage was very clean and had all that we needed. The sitting room is very light and comfortable. We recommend Felicity's Restaurant in Whiting By for excellent food.
    Mr Harding - August 2017
    we have stayed a few times at Dunollie and love the location and the house/garden. The cleaning is of a high standard and it was lovely to have a change of bed linen and house clean half way through our stay of two weeks. The house could do with a bit of updating and although we love the garden why if only comfortable chair provided surely there should be at least two because I cannot imagine that you have many single occupiers staying? Although we brought some fold up chairs with us they aren't the most comfortable of seats so please could someone buy another seat - the bench provided is getting a bit rickety! We do like the space Dunollie provides and that it's quiet and peaceful. We would recommend the Lochranza Hotel where we were just going to have a drink but in fact stayed for dinner, the food provided was excellent and in lovely surroundings.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your feedback. There certainly used to be two chairs! We will rectify this as soon as possible. We will also take a look at the bench in the off-season and see if it needs to be replaced or repaired."
    Miss Rogers - July 2017
    Dunollie cottage in Arran has a great location, fantastic views, very peaceful, only ever heard the birds singing. It gives easy access to the whole of the island.It is very well equipped with all you would need for a self-catering stay apart from towels. It feels very welcoming. Very dog friendly inside and out. The bottle of wine was much appreciated. Locally there are good cafes and a good shop, Coast. The beach in Whiting Bay made for a good short walk for the dog and the walk to The Giants Graves and Glenasdale Falls is on your doorstep and fantastic. In Brodick, Little Rock cafe is the most dog friendly cafe we have found and with excellent food and service, we went there most days, good value for money. The other find was the beach between Sannox and North Sannox, very quiet and beautiful.
    Ms Reid - June 2017
    We had a lovely stay at Dunollie. It is a spacious, comfortable cottage with plenty of utensils etc for any size of family. The bed was comfortable and the views from the cottage across Whiting bay were amazing. Our only slight gripe was the hot water, even with the boost there was not enough water for a decent bath and the amount that was allowed cooled down very quickly, making having a bath a cold and uncomfortable experience.
    Ms Brown - April 2017
    Lovely cottage with a great view. Very clean and comfortable. Arran has many things to do and see.
    Mrs Rietdijk - February 2017
    We recently stayed at Dunollie for a week break with our little jack Russell. Don't stay here if you are looking for mod cons you would see in a city centre hotel because this isn't that sort of place. What it is though is a cosy l, well equipped beautiful cottage with breathtaking views. It had absolutely everything you could need (even wifi!). We went on plenty of walks to take in the beautiful surroundings and the location for us was perfect. Because of the time of year it was a little quite and some shops and restaurants were closed but we still managed to enjoy a lot of what was on offer. We visited the distillery on the day of reopening which was brilliant, we also ate at the pht and had Scottish tapas at the auchrannie resort which were both excellent. You visit the Isle of Arran for the views, walking and the relaxed lifestyle, and this cottage is perfect for all three. We will be visiting again soon and can't wait to come back.
    Mr Brooks - February 2017
    We had a lovely week at Dunollie and even managed a couple of breakfasts outside in the autumn sunshine. House cosy and clearly a second home with the amount of crockery etc available. Great views and we enjoyed sunrise walks on the beach, followed by gazing across to the lights on the mainland in the evening. Can recommend the local cafe- "Shore". Friendly and we went to a curry night there which was nice. Highly recommend the cafe/bistro near Brodick Castle called "Wineport". We visited three times and they allow dogs inside. Arran a lovely island and we managed lots of different walks. We noticed however that a lot if places had closed down for the winter, but as this was the English half term week they missed out on potential customers. All in all a great week. "Haste us back".
    Mr And Mrs Rome - October 2016
    Dunollie was clean and well equipped. The bedding although clean was stained from perhaps a mixed wash, but is slightly off putting. The furnishings were a bit tired and dated in the living room and it took us till the second night to get the heating to work. Same with the hot water. Apart from these minor things we would recommend it as a lovely place to stay and we loved seeing the squirrels in the garden. All in all we had a great week and loved the location and views.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your constructive feedback. We will, as we do each year, review the bedlinen supplies in the off-season and replace as needed. We will also check that the instructions for the heating and hot water are as clear as possible."
    Mr Steven - October 2016
    Lovely setting, clean and comfortable.
    Mr Mcghee - September 2016
    Lovely clean, warm, homely, comfortable cottage, perfect place to have a base on the island, whiting bay is beautiful, the view from the Windows is amazing, the sun coming up and the sun going down views are beautiful, the red squirrels that visit the garden are so funny to watch, the Badgers on a night are very welcome to see,
    Mr Hill - September 2016
    Had a great holiday at Dunollie. The house was very well equipped and had everything you needed from books television videos c d's dishwasher and loads of kitchen equipment. The weather was a little mixed but there was always something to do. The villages and scenery are amazing. We visited the Arran Heritage centre which brought back a lot of memories for people of a certain age and Arran aromatics. The little cafe at the pier in Lamlash served up a lovely meal as did the golf club. The Brodick bar is also a nice place to eat. All in all a great week.Thank you cottages and castles.
    Mrs Hutcheson - September 2016
    Well equipped and cozy. Washer/dryer a bit difficult to figure out; especially the dryer. The manual I found confusing.
    Mr Robb - June 2016
    This is the best dog friendly cottage that we have stayed in. Dogs are allowed full access to all rooms. Well equipped. Large safe lawned garden with great views; perfect for relaxing in the sun. Two minutes walk to Whiting Bay Golf Club. Five minutes steep walk down to village. Great golf courses. Plenty of pubs and cafes throughout the island. Good walks catering for all ages. Just spent a wonderful month at Dunollie and have already booked another month next year.
    Mr Myers - May 2016
    This is a well equipped and pleasantly furnished house, plenty of space; its very quiet location up a lane from Whiting Bay was a major attraction. The view is glorious- breakfast outside in the lovely garden is a must!- and means we didn't go out to eat- too good at home! The bottle of wine and note of greeting from the owners made a great welcome.
    Mr Ramell - April 2016
    Good facilities and inclusive electricity handy. Kitchen a bit small but every electrical appliance could want. Short of some pyrex/ casserole dishes with fitting lids. Blackout linings in front bedroom would be good as it faces rising sun so very light. On a steep hill but lovely garden. Coast restaurant at foot of hill was nice as was nearby Eden Lodge.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your constructive feedback. We’ll definitely add to the casserole collection, and will look into black-out blinds or curtains in the front bedroom."
    Mr Carless - April 2016
    Donollie is in a convenient location in Whiting Bay, in an elevated position with fabulous sea views from the sitting room and main bedroom. It was very warm and also spacious. The sitting room and dining room were ideal for entertaining our son and his wife, who live on Arran. Kitchen is well equipped and there was plenty crockery and cutlery. The cottage is a little dated but the bathroom is modern and the rest of the house very clean and comfortable. The porch is useful for boots and outdoor gear. The owner left a decorated Christmas tree which was much appreciated and provided seasonal cheer. Arran Team also very friendly and efficient, they phoned to check that everything was OK on our second day.
    Mrs Hogg - December 2015
    Dunollie is a lovely holiday cottage in Whiting Bay, Arran. It has everything you would need and feels like a home from home. The views are great with lots of wildlife visiting the garden. We've been before and will probably return.
    Mr O'brien - September 2015
    Dunollie is a excellent holiday retreat, lovely area, fantastic wildlife in the garden, lovely clean home from home.
    Mr Hill - September 2015
    We stayed in Dunollie for the first time in 2014, so back again in 2015 and we've already booked our stay there for 2016 to cooincide with the Open Championship at Troon! We enjoyed staying in the house, it's very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. We like the fact that the rooms are light and of course the views are outstanding. The garden is very secluded and it's delightful to see the red squirrels, hare and the birds using it. Great to have space to leave the fishing tackle, walking boots before entering the house.
    Miss Rogers - July 2015
    Lovely setting, great views and well equipped house. Very fairly priced and would not hesitate to return. Thank you.
    Mr Beattie - April 2015
    Perfect little cottage against the hill of Whiting Bay. Even from the bedroom in the front stunning view on te water and Holy Isle. Everything you need is there, but the hot water supply could be better. And for large people, like me, the twin bed is rather small. But its a perfect location to explore Arran and see the squirrels playing in the backyard.
    Mr Stutvoet - September 2014
    We very much enjoyed staying at Dunollie. On arrival we particularly noticed the house was spotlessly clean, it felt that someone really had taken the time to make sure the house was cleaned properly. The rooms were a good size, and particularly important had good lighting (I'm an embroiderer and keen reader so this is important!). Beds were very comfortable and had plenty of storage space. Kitchen and dining room were very well supplied with china, cutlery and cooking materials, kitchen was a bit of a tight squeeze but manageable and it was useful to have the extension to leave boots and other gear. I did have a bit of trouble with the washing machine, in particularly getting the rinsing only to work and never quite fathomed it out but otherwise it was OK. We absolutely loved the garden, perfect place to sit out in with loads of birds and the occasional red squirrel and hare visiting. The garden was very well maintained as well. We have had many holidays on Arran but this was our first time at Dunollie and I would certainly recommend it - overall a lovely experience. I have already asked to provisionally book us in for July 2015 and we are even looking at 2016 as the British Open Golf is at Troon in 2016! By the way we had a power cut for one day in our first week of our holiday, got in touch with the Arran Team who were very helpful and gave us feedback from Scottish Power during the day.
    Miss Rogers - July 2014
    Dunollie is a comfortable house with beautiful sea views. We have stayed several times and are familiar with the facilities - cooker, washing machine, tv etc. Being in Whiting Bay it is also very handy for all the facilities on the island. We golf and play tennis and travelled to Lamlash, Brodick, Shiskine and Kildonan frequently during our stay. One improvement could be to brighten up the back bedroom. We feel the dark duvet and curtains make the room a bit gloomy.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you enjoy staying at Dunollie. You will pleased to know that the back bedroom is due for a makeover in the off-season this year!"
    Mrs Mccreaddie - June 2014
    This is a great cottage, well equipped and clean. There is a fantastic garden, and the children spent hours racing down the hill and playing hide and seek. There were also great views. We had a lovely holiday, particularly Brodick castle and gardens and tearooms (brilliant cake).
    Mrs Marshall - April 2014
    The cottage was clean and comfortable needed nothing
    Mrs Mcwilliam - February 2014
    Dunollie proved to be a lovely house, very well equipped and furnished. The garden was delightful, with lovely views over the Bay. I would definitely return to this property.
    Mrs Smart - August 2013
    Quiet location but with shops nearby, everything we needed in the cottage, comfy beds, plenty of holiday reading and guidebooks provided, and we managed to work the TV first time (not always easy in rented accommodation!) We had a rough crossing with rain and wind to and from the island, but in between it was mostly sunny and warm and made walking, visiting attractions, or just lazing around, really enjoyable. Only one disappointment: that we didn't see any wildlife to speak of around the cottage, as previous lodgers had done. Perhaps the squirrels and hares had gone somewhere else on holiday that week?
    Mrs Finch - June 2013
    Dunollie was a lovely property and its overall cleanliness was good, however, the kitchen could have done with being a lot cleaner. Also a non-slip mat for use in the shower would have been welcome. A great place to get a coffee was The Glenisle Hotel in Lamlash. The Drift Inn, also at Lamlash, had a lovely Beer Garden to sit and chill out after a long day of walking.
    Owners Response: "I apologise that you found the cleanliness of the kitchen below standard. Mostly we have comments about how clean the cottage is, so we will feed this back to our housekeeper. Your idea of a non-slip mat for the bathroom is a good one, and we’ll supply one for guests’ use as soon as possible. Thank you for your feedback; it is much appreciated."
    Mr Howe - May 2013
    Dunollie was ideal for us. Great setting with fantastic views over the water. The local cafe/restaurant 'Coast' was superb. Great food and atmosphere. There's plenty to do for all weather conditions on the island anyway but since the weather was great we had access to it all. Local walking is super too with a very scenic walk to Glenashdale falls (we benefitted from the rain during the week before we arrived). We will definitely be back!

    The reasons I am giving 4* rather than 5* are that although the cottage is delightful I was disappointed the cottage didn't have a radio and although a nice bottle of wine was waiting for us which was a lovely gesture, I would have gladly swapped it for a tea bag or two! I had remembered to bring wine but had forgotten tea bags! Most cottages I have rented have a little stock of essentials to get you through the first 24 hours but this cottage didn't have as much as a tea bag or one spoonful of sugar. Otherwise the cottage was clean, well equipped, lovely garden and views and ideal for touring round the island.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for the helpful feedback. We do have bedside radios, but we will add a portable radio for listening around the cottage. And my apologies that the tea/coffee/sugar supply had run out – we will make sure it is replenished."

    Mr Deans - September 2012
    nice clean and tidy cottage, great location with a great view .i would suggest any golfer should give the local golf course a try spectacular views over the water to the holy isle..negatives kitchen was small and it only having 2 bedrooms is not ideal as i needed a 4 bedroom house last time i went to arran ,as to booking dunollie again it would be dependent on how manys goin..that aside i enjoyed my stay and will be using use again next year .

    Lovely, spacious bungalow with beautiful views of the sea and Holy Island. Very quiet location and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A short walk down to Whiting Bay, where there is a Post Office, a good village shop selling locally sourced food and Coast, a lovely restaurant with friendly, helpful staff.
    Mr Fry - August 2012
    Lovely views and a great garden and the house has all the facilities. You could wish for.
    Mr Fulton - June 2012
    I thought the cottage was perfect, perfect position, handy for local amenities, and not far from anywhere at all! We found the Pier Head Tavern in Lamlash to be the best all round eating place, good food, good atmosphere, friendly staff. The pub next to Arran Brewery serve the BEST Goats Cheese salad in the world!

    Excellent accommodation great location for outdoor activities and very comfortable
    Mr Unwin - June 2012
    This cottage has a superb view over Holy Isle and Whiting Bay which can be appreciated while eating outside or through its big windows inside. The double bedroom enjoys this same view. The cottage is very comfortably furnished and the best equipped place we have every rented. A short walk brings you into the village and the local shop and Post Office - and the beach.
    Mrs Warman - May 2012
    Great cottage in great location with easy walk to Whiting Bay beach and Coast which is one of the best resturants on Arran. Accomodation was excellent and the cottage is well equipped. All of the party including our dog Angus were very happy (He had his bed in the airy and spacious entrance porch.)
    Mr Henderson - March 2012
    Wonderful views from the lounge and main bedroom. House and garden offer privacy while being close to shops, facilities, a pub, places to eat and the beach! The house came fully equiped and everything worked. A good place to focus on work or a project as it has wifi. In February the fact that the house is not centrally heated made it slightly chilly. The bedrooms especially as they lack storage heaters. I needed to leave the internal doors open and an electric fire on so that I could sleep comfortably in the main bedroom. The beds only had thin duvets on them, I needed to lay sleeping bags over mine to make it warm enough. A painter turned up un-anounced on two sepperate days to paint the outside walls. Dunollie was the right choice for me.
    Owners Response: "Apologies for the lack of extra blankets, which will be remedied for winter lets in future. Apologies too for not letting you know about the painting work that had been scheduled prior to the booking being taken."
    Mr Newman - February 2012
    The cottalge was immaculately clean and tidy. We have stayed here previously and fell in love with the place. It has everything you could possibly think of and it has amazing sea views.
    Mr Hogarth - October 2011
    Visited many times as a child in the 70s and 80s and was delighted to be able to return with my own family. Nice place, good location, great views, clean and well prepared for visitors.
    Mr Beattie - October 2011
    We have stayed in many properties in Arran and this was the best taking everything into consideration. A very well equipped house, excellent local information, beautiful garden with amazing views and a lovely bottle of wine to welcome us. Clear instructions regarding use of kitchen equipment, rubbish collection etc which all help to make our stay free of any hassles.Everything was very clean , comfortable and really homely and we hope to book again for next year despite our bad luck with a very rainy week!!
    Dr Jones - August 2011
    Superb views, secluded private gardens and a delightful property that is very well presented and equipped. The bungalow was very clean (the only criticism -purely for the record- was that the bottom of the oven had not been cleaned.) We throughly enjoyed our stay at Dunollie, and appreciated the help we received from 'The Arran Team'
    Mr Kay - June 2011
    Very comfortable, very clean traditional cottage, everything you need whilst on holiday contained within the cottage, modern services and spacious. Large private garden for children, ample car parking with superb views to relax and enjoy the evening. Take binoculars to view the scenery and children love feeding the horses in the neighbouring field. Car needed to make the climb up the hill for the less abled, but only minutes away from Whiting Bay shops and sandy beach.
