yoga, well being detox pampering courses - 4-star accommodation - Duntrune House, Dundee, Scotland
Your Real Retreat accommodation is in the VisitScotland four-star Gold Duntrune House owned by Barrie and Olwyn Jack. Duntrune is a historic mansion dating from 1826, in eight acres of garden and woodland, five miles north of Dundee. Duntrune was owned by the Graham family until 1870; the famous Grahams in Scotland's history were John Graham of Claverhouse (Bonnie Dundee), the Jacobite commander killed at Killiecrankie in 1689 in the Wars of the Convenanters, and his kinsman, James Graham, Marquis of Montrose, who fought in the Civil War of the 1640s.
The bedrooms: The four en-suite bedrooms (three with shower only, one with bath and shower over the bath) with twin or super-king beds are decorated to a high standard. All have modern facilities, cosy bathrobes, hospitality tray, hairdryer and specially chosen 'green' toiletries. The bedrooms are spacious, with high ceilings and comfortable, sink-into-and-relax beds and antique furniture, all chosen to suit the ambience of Duntrune. Choose from the Graham, the Scott, the Duncan and the Lady Pitlyal rooms.
The guest sitting room: With comfy arm chairs, a log fire on cold evenings and a good book from our extensive collection, you can enjoy a truly relaxing experience.
The drawing room: Large airy room where yoga and bellyfit classes take place.
The garden: There is a quiet sanctuary in the wood from which the River Tay and the hills of Fife can be seen. Another sanctuary is the rose garden with views of the house, bee boles in the ancient wall, a herbaceous border and a newly planted wild flower garden. The wet land field is a haven for birds and orchids. A walk along the terrace over the haha and up towards the recently planted orchard provides relaxing easy daily exercise.
The views: The south facing rooms have a panoramic view over the lawn to open fields, the hills of Fife and the Firth of Tay.
