About the Event

This activity provides full access to the 1745 House Museum, including the stunning Women of Dunollie Exhibition. 

Discover the fascinating history of the MacDougall Clan and their servants throughout exhibitions in the 1745 House Museum, with new additions to the displays for 2021. 

*Last Chance To See: 'Women of Dunollie Exhibition": Follow the fascinating women of Dunollie through the eras, from 1820 - 2020.  See stories of the Clan MacDougall from another perspective, and view some rare items from our ancient textile collections, including the beautiful bettlewing dress.

The Women of Dunollie has been created from stories featured in the popular book "Highland Postbag" written by Jean MacDougall. If you would like to pre-order a copy to collect on your visit, click here

*This exhibition will only be available to view in person until October 2021, as the ancient textile garments need to be rested.
