A little bit more about Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds...
Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds is an internationally recognised centre for Scottish culture and heritage and home of the World-Wide Clan MacDougall.
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, displaying textiles, a Highland Social History collection as well as Clan MacDougall material and archives. Dunollie’s Historic Woodland Grounds surround the 1745 House and Castle Ruin.
Dunollie is open annually from April to September for visitors, and special events take place throughout the year.
Did you know?
Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds is managed by the MacDougall of Dunollie Preservation Trust (DPT), a non-for-profit charitable trust.
This means all monies raised in Dunollie go straight back into the site to help with conservation and development efforts, or simply to keep running. As an independent charity, we rely heavily on donations.
DPT’s aims however, go beyond conservation as we seek to promote and share this invaluable cultural and natural heritage for the benefit of the local, national and international community. That is why we constantly seek to be as accessible as possible and maintain a strong community engagement program.
