Dunheanish Guest House
Ranked #3 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 December 2017

Along with my sister I spent four nights at Dunheanish Guest House in October 2017. The rooms were comfortable and spotless and had everything that we needed (including sweets), breakfast was delicious and cooked to order (upon mentioning her desire to try Black Pudding it appeared on my sister's breakfast plate the next morning!) and William and Linda could not have been nicer. The house is lovely and has been well kept, you'll want for nothing during your stay.
Being up on a hill the views from the house over the harbour are incredible. Binoculars are even in the room to better enjoy the view. The only drawback to that hill is that if you are traveling without a car as we did the hike up it at the end of the day is a doozy, but is good exercise ;-) And you can always stop halfway up to catch your breath and say that you're admiring the view. Or if you're lucky the artist that lives along the road will have her studio open during your visit and you can pop in to look at her wares and buy a print to take home like we did.
Oban is a joy to explore on foot. We walked along the harbour and also down to Dunollie Castle for an enjoyable afternoon, we took the ferry over to Mull and to Duart Castle (a gentleman at the ferry office was kind enough to arrange a driver to transport us between the ferry and castle as it was off season) and enjoyed many of the shops and restaurants in town. The fondue at Oban Chocolate was especially delicious (but try to get there during a not so busy time to avoid the line).
All in all it was a wonderful stay at Dunheanish House and a pleasure to explore Oban.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a fantastic view over the rooftops and to the harbour, room 6 is cozier and has a view of...

I had the pleasure of staying with William at his gorgeously appointed guesthouse overlooking the Oban bay for two nights. Nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was amazing and the welcome was warm and engaging. The room was beautifully decorated and equipped with a four poster bed and a view to die for. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dunheanish.

My wife and I recently stayed at this wonderfully restored old mansion up the hill in Oban above the harbor. Views are fabulous, rooms are large, en-suite, with great comfortable beds and lovely towel warmers in the bathroom, fast WiFi, amazing cooked to order breakfast served by the proprietor’s very friendly and personable husband. The only thing one could possibly “complain” about is that the roads leading to the house are exceedingly narrow, but that’s Oban generally, not this B&B specifically. Easy walk down to the main drag for restaurants and pubs and Oban Distillery (all about 1/4 mike, though walk back up hill requires a bit more effort).

My husband and I stayed in room 1 for one night. The room is on the first floor at the front of the house and has an amazing view! Binoculars are even provided. The room is large and very comfortable. Williams is a friendly, knowledgeable host. Parking is tricky, but my husband managed even with the Mercedes the rental company upgraded us to, which really wasn't doing us any favors! Yes, it is an uphill climb from town, but the view is worth it.

Room Tip: Room one in the front of the house is very nice.
