    Our Testimonials

    Old Duninald

    We stayed here for our wedding that we had at Tocal homestead. Best weekend of our lives. Old Duninald is without a doubt my favourite AirBnB we have stayed.

    My bridal party got ready here and we got the most beautiful photos. Thank you Julia for being the most gracious and relaxed host. Will recommend this stay to other families and couples. Thanks.
