“The Jewel of The Glen”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was the most memorable holiday I have spent with my kids. Anywhere!

The drive to Glenelg is but small preparation for the breathtaking scenery surrounding this architectural gem of a house.
(I would entreat you to drive via Glencoe, if possible)

Duntrodden House is situated between two fantastic brochs, up a dreamscape of a winding road off the Glenelg to Arnisdale road. Set beneath two majestic hills, the valley (glen?!) of Glenbeag is almost comically beautiful: a tumbling waterfall, a meandering river, the brochs, a farm selling veg and salad (from an honesty box!! Too cute!) as well as AWESOME coffee (really!!) and cake from a converted showman’s trailer. And that’s before you’ve even got to the house!!

Duntrodden House appears to be a very recent new build (see pictures), but it nestles confidently and fittingly in its surroundings. It has a grass roof and is predominately wood with complimentary and contrasting dry-stone walling around it. Inside it is sooo spacious! The entrance hall leads into a massive kitchen and dining room, with a balcony and stairs down to a large sitting room.

The star of the show is the HUGE windows that provide a cinematic panorama of the highland wilderness. In fine weather you can sit on one of the balconies to bask in the raw beauty of the glen, but in the occasionally inclement (!) moment... WOW! To see the epic weather of the west coast beating against this castle of a house from within, warmed by the log burner... just WOW!!!

Inside Duntrodden we loved the super comfortable beds with duck down duvets (hypoallergenic (whatever that means!) fibre available too, apparently), the brilliant and big bunk beds, the wi-fi, The well laid out kitchen, the gathering point of the big kitchen table, the fluffy towels, the S P A C E !!

It was a real privilege to have rented Duntrodden and we can’t wait to come back for more river swimming, walks, cycling, and good craic!
