The place

The perfect spot to explore the incredible the Isle of Arran, Dunfion is a modern getaway to contrast this ancient land. Your days could be spent exploring and adventuring, whether that’s finding nearby ancient forts, hiking formidable mountains, or taking on the many (slightly flatter) walks straight from the front door. Or they could be spent a little more leisurely back at your space. A beautiful spot to hunker down, only venture out to grab supplies or dip in the sea, just 15 minutes away. Otherwise, enjoy lying down with a good book on the comfy sofa, or even the memory foam bed. There are plenty of spots to bring the dog for a bite to eat, walks around the locale to enjoy with your four-legged friend. And best of all, when the day ends you can sit by the firepit with the hound and share a moment that’ll last many dog years.

In the neighbourhood

  • Take on The Arran Coastal Way – offering a challenging 65-mile circular route around the stunning Isle of Arran, it’s perfect for a week-long walking holiday. Enjoy breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife, and optional side trips. It’s recognised as one of Scotland's Great Trails, with well-marked paths, visitor services, and online resources for trip planning
  • Explore some of the mountain walks on Arran, including the highest summit, Goatfell, at 874m. With captivating views and well-marked routes, hill walkers can enjoy the unique experience of venturing into the dramatic terrain. Spot iconic wildlife, learn mountain navigation, or visit World War Two air crash sites
  • Go on a circular walk around the Cock of Arran – rocky and untamed coastline, combined with a moorland climb and descent. Steeped in history, this remote part of the island carries historical significance, with remains of human settlements from bygone eras. Uncover the stories of the past while admiring the remarkable geology and abundant wildlife, including fascinating fossil Arthropleura tracks dating back over 300 million years
  • One of Scotland's favourite mountains, Beinn Nuis is found in the heart of Arran. This 792-metre peak is dotted with deer and surrounded by awe-inspiring views. It’s an idea to keep the dog on a lead, for your dog's (and the deer’s) safety. Experience the joy of bouncing around the mountain with your four-legged companion
  • Take on a challenge, with a thrilling climb along the east ridge of Caisteal Abhail, where the famous Witch's Step lies waiting. Wander the ridge, scramble to the summit, and follow the curving northward ridge to Sail an Im, completing a horseshoe route. The best part of a horseshoe ridge is spending most of your time at a peak, taking in breathtaking vistas, and an easy descent to North Glen Sannox
  • If there’s one thing this area isn’t lacking – it’s good places to eat. Food’s taken very seriously here, possibly only surpassed by a good glass of something. If you’re looking for pre or post-Goatfell food, pop into The Wineport for an expansive menu, and a long drinks list. If you’re looking for good food, but perhaps also a night out, then try The Pierhead Tavern, where the menu boasts options for all, and whisky or gin-tasting nights are common! Both options, of course, are dog friendly.
