Dungallan Country House welcomes you

The tourist location of Dungallan Country House on the west coast of Scotland is prime. Oban offers many sights, including the famous whiskey distillery. It also offers beautiful landscapes and numerous restaurants with fish specialities. It is the starting point for trips to the islands of Kerrera, Mull and Lismore.

The château-style guesthouse is in an elevated position with unrivalled views of Oban Bay and the islands. It was built in 1860 for the then Duke of Argyll as a summer residence set in 4.5 acres of gardens. Today the house welcomes guests from all over the world – for holidays and glittering parties.

Innovation project in Tanzania - partnership with terre des hommes extended

As part of Varem’s commitment, the partnership with terre des hommes for the EBLI project was extended for another three years.

Together with strong partners in the big city of Mwanza in Tanzania, Varem is committed to sustainable fuels and jobs, thus securing an income for young mothers in need, among others. The CHABRI Energy Company produces organic briquettes that minimise the harmful smoke of conventional fuels. The briquettes are made from agroforestry waste and not only make traditional cooking over an open fire more environmentally and health friendly. Social justice is also promoted by this enterprise.

In addition to the production plant, a new hall for production could be built with the support. Further planned steps are the installation of a solar plant. The project is intended to serve as a pilot and lighthouse project for the entire region and offer opportunities for sustainable value creation and the path to the energy future in the developing country of Tanzania.
