About the event

Make your way to the village of Dunbeg to discover another of the MacDougall Castles!

The MacDougalls of the 13th C were not only great warlords (sometimes styled kings) of what is now Argyll; they were also innovators, especially when it came to castle design. Built in 1220 AD, Dunstaffnage Castle is a fantastic example of this ingenuity and is unusual for the time, being one of the first in Scotland built out of stone. The Secrets behind the Stones are there to be explored in this tour around Dunstaffnage Castle. Discover what is needed to build such a fortress and what it is truly like to live and work in a 13th century castle.

The tour will begin on the grassy area outside the shop and last for about an hour. It is suitable for all ages. Please note that the entrance to the castle is up a steep staircase (though there is a strong handrail) and may not be accessible to people with mobility issues.
