A stone's throw from the forth road bridge the boathouse is easy to get to. Once you're on the estate it's very peaceful and you forget how close civilisation is! The location is great - sat on the side of a large pond the balcony is a great feature. Complimentary drinks went down a treat. Overall a relaxing stay and...

We were fortunate enough to stay here on our weeding night 14 years ago and fortunate enough again to come back to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. A truely peaceful, romantic and private sanctuary which met all our expectations.

Management response:

Congratulations on your Wedding Anniversary Mick. We were delighted that you could return to the Boathouse to celebrate it! Hopefully we will see you both again in the future. Regards, The Dundas Team

My husband and I married at Dundas in September 2015 and we stayed in the Boathouse for a night to celebrate our first anniversary. We had a lovely, relaxing stay. The views of the lake from the boathouse decking are beautiful. The interior is very in-keeping with Dundas style. A great night away in the peace and quiet!

Management response:

Happy Anniversary to you both. We look forward to seeing you next year too?
