Dungallan is a striking country house built in blond sandstone under a pitched slate rood with a square tower and wonderful bay windows. The property was built by the Duke of Argyll as his summer residence in 1870, with later alterations carried out by Robert Lorimer. Previously existing as a guest house, this property could now offer outstanding family accommodation over three floors.

The main reception rooms are all impressive with period features and very good views – the elegant drawing room has a period fireplace at each end and stunning sea views.

Dungallan has a wonderful coastal setting just outside the town of Oban which has a very good range of shops and services, and is well known as the main gateway to the western isles.
