Welcome to the Dunphail Web

My name is Jim Farquharson. This website was set up originally to market the Braemoray Hotel which I, along with my wife Jennifer, had the privilege of owning from 1997 until 2006. The hotel closed as a commercial concern in 2005 and we moved to our current home when we sold “The Brae”. During our time as publicans we were given a lot of information and photographs, not only about our Hotel and its previous incarnations, but of the surrounding area. It seemed an awful waste to just ‘fling it oot’ or put it into a box that no-one would read, hence carrying on the site.
So, a little bit of history; the Braemoray was originally a school which closed in 1965. In 1970 it was converted into a bar and hotel. It is now a private home but its walls are steeped in the laughter of the children who attended school there, the happy evenings when it served the local community as a place to meet, and no doubt a few drams that never made it to their proper destination.

The Yes Declaration

"I believe it is fundamentally better for us all, if decisions about Scotland's future are taken by the people who care most about Scotland, that is, by the people of Scotland.

Being independent means Scotland's future will be in Scotland's hands. There is no doubt that Scotland has great potential. We are blessed with talent, resources and creativity. We have the opportunity to make our nation a better place to live, for this and future generations. We can build a greener, fairer and more prosperous society that is stronger and more successful than it is today.

I want a Scotland that speaks with her own voice and makes her own unique contribution to the world: a Scotland that stands alongside the other nations on these isles, as an independent nation."


The National Newspaper of Scotland
