EPC Rating - G


Positioned on the east coast of the Mull of Kintyre, overlooking the Kilbrannan Sound to the west coast of the Isle of Arran – truly a very Scottish and beautiful scenic coastal location – the Dunvalanree is close to the picturesque village of Carradale.

Dunvalanree is an attractive and substantial property, built in 1939, which has a superb location overlooking Port Righ Bay, just south of Carradale on the Kintyre peninsula. This beautiful location conjures endless notions of romanticism, and rightly so, but on a more macabre note Port Righ is also infamously known as the only place in the UK where there has been recorded fatalities – in 1937!! – resulting from a shark attack (a basking shark)!! On a more historical note, Port Righ is also believed to have been the landing point for Robert the Bruce, whilst escaping from the English, and where, allegedly, loosely the cave is located in the locality where Robert the Bruce had his “spider experience” – of course there are other caves, elsewhere in Scotland, who may also claim the right to that experience!!

Carradale has a charming working harbour which has a proliferation of nets, floats, ropes, lobster pots on the quayside alongside the moored fishing boats, and the village boasts a “wee gem” of a 9-hole golf course. As well as the Port Righ Bay Beach at Dunvalanree, there is the wide sweep of the sandy Carradale Beach – a popular attraction. Also nearby to Dunvalanree is a popular leisure and caravan park and the “Kintyre Way” passes through the Carradale area. All of this draws visitors to the immediate locality to the benefit of Dunvalanree – plus the attraction of the nearby Mull of Kintyre, Campbeltown, Isle of Gigha and Machrihanish – for many a “must see” on the South Argyll tour – ensures a steady flow of visitors to the region.

Dunvalanree has operated as a guest house with restaurant and previously has been graded four star by Visit Scotland as a “Restaurant with Rooms” and had entries in the Good Food Guide and Good Hotel Guide. The seller has owned the Dunvalanree since 1998 and operated continuously through to the end of the 2016 season. For personal reasons the business did not operate or open for business in 2017. Dunvalanree truly does sit in to the category of a “life-style” business opportunity. The inclusion of a 4-bedroom private flat for owners is a huge attraction and provides a good home and excellent opportunity for new owners to develop and establish their own style of business at Dunvalanree.
