Arran

Brodick
Helen and George McAdam
Dunvegan Guest House
Shore Rd.
Brodick
Isle of Arran
Scotland KA27 8AJ
Tel/fax. 01770 302811
STB 4 star
Year 2003 review

Why Stay Here: Dunvegan is centrally located and only a short walk from the ferry terminal. It is one of the few places in Brodick rated 4 star. There are 9 rooms, all but one of which is ensuite. Rooms have tea tray and tv and comfortable mattresses. A guest lounge overlooks the waterfront. Helen is an obliging host.

Why Not: Rooms vary; book a sea view. You may have to park across the road. Singles don't get an ocean view with their breakfast.

Why Stay Here: Drumellan is a lovely country house set in its own acreage that includes lawns, flower gardens and a woods. There are beautiful views over the Scottish hills. The dining room is a superb setting for the great breakfasts. The bedrooms and bathroom/shower rooms are spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, and have comfortable chairs/sofas. There are good power showers. Pattie is a charming hostess who goes out of her way to be helpful. Lots of parking. A self-catering cottage is also available in the grounds. The location is perfect for visiting Culzean castle or for Prestwick airport.

Why Not: No tv in the rooms, but there is one in the lounge. Mattresses not comfortable. Some bedrooms have private rather than ensuite facilities, so be sure to ask for whichever suits you.

Year 2003 review

Why Stay Here: This Georgian townhouse sits across from the harbour, thus providing stunning views over the water. It's just 2 seconds to go across the road and walk along the waterfront or down to the shops. The 8 rooms are clean and comfortable, and all have tv and tea trays. The bathroom/shower rooms have good water power and are well equipped. Fiona is a gracious and helpful host.

Why Not: Street parking. There aren't many desirable places for an evening meal in Rothesay; a day trip over to the island might suit some better.

2001 Review: Just lovely. The hosts opened not only their home but also their hearts to us. We felt more like returning friends than first time lodgers. We have made friends with them and will definitely return. The home is clean and ideally situated for touring. The food is excellent and plentiful. The benefits of the home are only exceeded by Mal & Lindsay's hospitality and warmth. 4 stars is not a high enough rating in my book for Fourteen Falls B&B.

Year 2003 review

Why Stay Here: All rooms are spotlessly clean, have tv and tea trays. The mattresses are of superb quality. There is a large and comfortable guest lounge. Guests may use the large lawn and garden at the rear of the house. Ample parking. Children welcome. Pete and Deborah are helpful and cheerful hosts. Evening meals, cooked by Deborah and using fresh produce, are superb. Best of all, Deborah knows all about gluten free diets and is able to cater to them. Kingussie is a pleasant town with an interesting museum. For fans of the tv show, this is 'Monarch of the Glen' country, and the scenery is outstanding. The Cairngorms and Aviemore ski area are a short drive away.

Why Not: Noise: the train track runs right at the bottom of the garden.

Year 2003 review

Why Stay Here: Bertie and Lizzie offer the warmest of welcomes that continues throughout your stay. Their round the world stays (resulting from Bertie's navy days) makes for a store of fascinating stories that they share with their guests. It's great fun to stay here.

This 18th century schoolhouse lies in Loch Lomond Park. It's an excellent location for Loch Lomond cruises and visits to Lomond Shores. Being in a quiet village it's away from all the heavy traffic associated with the roads leading into Glasgow. There's a village store for the paper and basics. It's also handy for driving east into the Trossachs and about 15 minutes from a commuter train into Glasgow.

There's a large comfortable lounge full of books, maps and magazines and a pleasant dining room. Lizzie is an excellent cook and serves memorable meals using the freshest of ingredients. The b and b is licensed. The 3 ensuite rooms are spotlessly clean and supplied with tv, tea tray, chairs, etc. The beds have wonderful mattresses and beautiful linens. The bathroom/shower rooms have plenty of water power and all the supplies you need.

Why Not: You have to keep your windows closed to keep out the midges (and possibly a bat or two). Watch your head on the sloping walls of the upstairs room.

Year 2003 review

Why Stay Here: Everything is clean. Beautiful garden with outstanding countryside view. Quiet location. Janet is an excellent cook and serves delicious evening meals (not always available). Lots of easy parking. Children welcome. This is an ideal location for visiting Glasgow. It is five minutes to the commuter train where you can park your car for free. The train takes about 15-20 minutes to get to central Glasgow and runs regularly and often. It's also near a RSPB site. East Lochhead has a variety of accommodations that include 3 ensuite rooms in the main house (one has a basin in the room with tiny shower room; the others have bathrooms.)

Why Not: Mattresses not comfortable. The décor in need of an update. The self-catering cottages vary greatly in size and layout, so be sure to find out exactly what you are getting. Also, you are required to clean them up before you leave.
