Taking Our Castle To Another Level | Conservation

We are delighted that work has now started on phase III of the Dunollie Castle conservation project which has been made possible by our Save the Stones campaign.

 

Thank you to all of you who have supported so far. 

 

Throughout this exciting phase of works repairing the final two walls to allow public access to the upstairs of the castle, we will be exploring the mystique of the Speckled Bedroom which is referenced in Dunollie papers as far back as 1592.

 

The Speckled Bedroom is a great source of discussion at Dunollie; which room was it? why was it called the Speckled Bedroom? and what happened in there?  

 

‘Duncan O Conchobhair, ‘surgeon in Kerrera’ witnessed a sasine of lands in Lismore to Alexander Campbell of Dunstaffnage on 12 July 1617, and he recorded the death of Duncan MacDougall of Dunollie ‘in the speckled bedroom’ of Dunollie Castle on 31 August.’
