About the Owner

We are Alastair, Anne, Ava Lily and Atticus. The four of us have previously lived in Vietnam and northern California (holla!) and we are now at Dunskey Estate, one of the most beautiful places we've visited on this planet. We love Southwest Scotland and cannot wait to show you all the splendour that Dunskey has to offer. Please come see us for a cuppa when you visit. There are many secret passageways around the estate that are simply divine and we'd love to show you.

Ah, we wish we can capture the magic of Dunskey.

As you can see it's a bit difficult to showcase it all here. However you can rest assured that you will be utterly enchanted by the estate. If you are looking for an authentic and wildly unique experience, do come and be our guests. We will even bake you a scrumptious cake :-)

From the Owner

The grounds are immaculate and the beauty completely unspoilt. We work very hard to ensure the entire state is in spectacular and safe condition. Come during the winter for the shockingly good seafood which we can deliver straight from the sea to you. The blanket of snow brings serenity, especially if you're cuddled up in our amazingly cozy cottages. In the spring, the forests are carpeted in daffodils, snowdrops and bluebells and there are so many woodland creatures frolicking about. Sunbathe on the amazing beaches or by the lochs in the summer, and be sure to wander through the fragrant walled garden late into the evening. The autumn, our favourite season, brings forth a symphony of leaf colours and you can almost hear the forests sighing, getting ready for deep sleep.
