Review on Dunvalanree Hotel
Dunvalanree House is a delightful three-storey hotel overlooking Port Righ Bay on the Mull of Kintyre. Current hosts Alyson and Alan Milstead are continuing a tradition of hospitality that goes back more than 70 years.
The couple are keen on local produce, keep chickens, bake their own bread and procure seafood from the Carradale boats. Alyson's dinner menus are concise, imaginative and appealing, without going overboard: scallops vinaigrette or smoked mussels in garlic butter with bacon lardoons might precede Kintyre venison with cranberry and port compote or fillet of haddock with Arran mustard and Campbeltown Cheddar crust.
Desserts are something of a feature, with boozy offerings like hot chocolate cake doused in chocolate and Drambuie sauce or bananas poached in dark rum and maple syrup with pecans. The wine list straddles the globe, and it's also worth checking out the line-up of malt whiskies and Arran beers.
