Argyll House

Argyll House is a beautifully refurbished Victorian property and one of two girls boarding houses at Dollar Academy. Benefiting from its period design, this magnificent building is very spacious and has the feeling of a grand family home.

Located at the school gates, overlooking the lawns and playing fields, Argyll has beautiful views of the Ochil Hills. This is home to up to 24 girls aged between ten and eighteen, who all benefit from their close proximity to the gymnasium, swimming pool, tennis courts and the school art studios.

House Head Maria Carletti and Deputy Head Millie DenehyThe younger girls have great fun sharing a bedroom with one or two others, whilst the older girls are usually offered a private single room - perfect for studying.  There is also a movie and games room, a large common room,  study areas, plenty of shower rooms and baths, and a very well equipped kitchen-diner  for evening snacks.  The boarding house also has a computer suite with high speed internet access and Skype facility for staying in touch with relatives abroad. There is full access to wifi throughout the house.

The Hose FamilyThe girls in Argyll House are cared for by Martin and Ashley Hose, who live in the staff quarters within the house along with their two young daughters, Vaila and Erin, making this a unique family home.   Martin has taught Physical Education at Dollar since 2007 and Ashley has previously worked as a Project Manager for the NHS. Ashley and Martin are supported in the day-to-day running of the house by a large team of Assistant House Staff and House Tutors.
