Welcome to Dungallan Country House
If your next break conjures up images of being well looked after in an oasis of calm, having a glass of champagne, whisky or G&T in peaceful surroundings with the most breath-taking views, a short walk to amenities and on the doorstep of Scottish island hopping, then consider a stay with us. It’s clear to see why the Duke of Argyll picked this particular spot to build Dungallan Country House as his summer residence in 1870
Dungallan’s owner embarked on an extensive renovation in early 2022 to sympathetically reinstate some well-deserved sumptuous, understated charm and glamour. In addition to the bedroom refurbishment, three new suites were also created with the addition of opulent rolltop baths and underfloor heating. In the main house, the bar, restaurant and library were also treated to the tasteful renovation experience. This included a wall to wall bookcase in the library, the perfect spot to relax after a long day, tastefully upholstered comfortable and inviting seating in the bar to enjoy a tipple of your choice and the fabulous restaurant with breath-taking views over Oban Bay and the hills beyond.
The Gaelic translation of Oban is little bay and you will discover that the enviable position of Dungallan Country House yields full advantage of this Scottish gem.

When driving on Gallanach Road, you will see the ferry terminal entrance on your right; continue past this and you will come to a sharp, narrow bend in the road. Just around this bend on the left hand side, you will see the large white Dungallan Country House sign at the bottom of our driveway.
10/10 Highly Recommended...
We noticed the amazing reviews for Dungallan Country House since their renovations were completed and decided to give it a shot. Needless to say this was an amazing decision. The property looks stunning, is perfectly situated and the staff were fantastic. We spent our time sitting in the gorgeous Library, reading and soaking up the sun. We also loved the breakfast. The best thing about this hotel though is you'll have no trouble parking - you won't get this at other hotels in Oban. Highly recommended!!
Recommended for the luxurious refurbishment and the friendly efficiency of the staff.
We spent 3 nights at the Dungallan Country House hotel at the beginning of June 2022 just after they reopened after refurbishment. We thought it was a risk because the refurbishment might not be completed. So on arrival we were pleased that the refurbishment had finished and had clearly been done to a very high standard. We had taken a double room with Seaview and the furnishings were luxurious and the views over Oban Bay were wonderful. Breakfast was excellent, the bar was well stocked and the managers Simon and Kirsty and all the staff were helpful and friendly.
Beautiful quality accommodation with unrivalled views.
A beautiful, newly refurbished and opened country house that oozes style and quality with views second to none in Oban… The 2 days of sunshine did also really help. Simon and Kirsty were great hosts and I am sure Dungallan will prosper under their management.
What an amazing place! The location is out of this world, with glorious panoramic views across Oban Bay and out to sea. Fabulous terrace and bar to enjoy the sunset. Great selection of gins and whiskies. Simon and Kirsty are the perfect hosts. The Dungallan suite is stunning and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and a great selection to chose from. We will definitely be back.
There is absolutely nothing not to like about this hotel!! Real shame we could only stay one night.
Everything! Location, accommodations, breakfast, but nothing beats the staff here. Treated like the Laird of the Castle.
