Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds is known as a world class visitor attraction, but it is also run by an independent charitable trust that does not receive any mandatory funding from local or national government. The MacDougall of Dunollie Preservation Trust is responsible for the conservation of 6 historic listed buildings and monuments, including two castles, nationally important archives and 10,000 historic objects.
The whole site, from the Medieval Castle Ruins to the 1745 House Museum and the woodland Grounds, relies on visitor revenue, grants and donations to achieve its twin charitable aims of Heritage Conservation and Education on the Dunollie site. It costs over £220 a day to operate the site, with additional funding needed for conservation, learning and new capital development projects. We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
