Over the years my partner and I have stayed in guesthouses all over the Highlands and Dunallen is one of the best we have ever found. In fact I can't remember a better one anywhere in the UK. I really can't think of anything even slightly negative to say about it.
David and Jayne were generous and welcoming hosts, always ready to chat and full of advice about how to make the best of our stay, recommending great walks, excellent local restaurants and generally making sure our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.
Our room was quiet and comfortable and, as a confirmed bookworm, I was delighted to find a selection of paperbacks there as well as the usual tourist welcome folder.
Breakfast was as good as it gets, better than many hotels, with fresh fruit and yoghourt as well as cereal and lots of choice of cooked food. I have to give a special mention to the exceptional scrambled eggs (my breakfast of choice), with or without smoked salmon from the local smokehouse.
We'll definitely be making a return visit; we've never stayed in Grantown before and were pleasantly surprised by the town and its amenities generally, but it was the guesthouse which made our stay.
