We stayed at the Dunvegan for a week based on the recommendation of my father who had stayed there a few years earlier - it was an unforgettable experience. From the moment we arrived, Sheena (the owner) was very welcoming and instructed us where to store our clubs for the week (convenient locker next to the bar). We were jet legged but couldn't resist the bar and the great selection of beers/drinks (Belhaven Best was my favourite). The food was great. We ate the Chilli Nachos every day, the steaks were tender and delicious, the burgers were great and so was the Chicken Fricasse. In addition, Jack made us breakfast every morning and the Dunvegan McMuffin and hashbrowns were always a great start to the day. The staff were very accommodating: Linda, Lindsay and Katy went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The pub is well decorated with countless pictures of famous golfers and celebrities drinking at the very pub. We would sit out on the patio and chat with the people walking by every day. The rooms were quiet, comfortable and very well cleaned.
Being half a block from the 18th green is such a convenience for those trying to play the St Andrews courses. There is also a great souvenir shop across the street to buy your St Andrews apparel. Everything else you need in St Andrews is a convenient walk away (visiting the castle, walking along the Old Course, walking the beach, etc.) Sheena helped us out with every facet of the trip (organizing taxis, which courses to play, booking the courses, etc). We played every course we wanted to, including the Old Course twice, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.
Whether you're planning a trip or looking for a place to grab a pint, the Dunvegan is a must. We are already planning a return trip two years from now.
