Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds is an internationally recognised centre for Scottish culture and heritage and home of the World-Wide Clan MacDougall.


We are open Sunday-Friday from 10am - 4pm. 

Dunollie is located about 1 mile north of Oban along the coast, in an area known to have been inhabited for at least 8,000 years. Perched on a cliff and surrounded by stunning views across Oban Bay and the Isles is Dunollie’s medieval Castle Ruin. In the oldest part of the Laird’s House below is our 1745 House Museum, home to a significant collection Highland Social History including our temporary photography exhibition 'Hope Behind the Lens' as well as Clan MacDougall material and archives. Dunollie’s beautiful Historic Woodland Grounds surround the 1745 House and Castle Ruin and offer a place of relaxation for adults and outdoor exploration for children.

Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds is open annually from April to October for visitors, and special events for all ages take place throughout the year. Dogs on a lead are welcome in Dunollie's outdoors spaces.
