Old Duninald was established in 1821
The location is clearly second to none. The tasteful renovation of the 1800’s home and our host were what made our stay a true delight.
Whether entertaining the family on the deck or relaxing after a big weekend, this place was perfect.
Thanks for a great weekend.
