Piping at the Castle

Sundays at 1.30pm.

Every week, we are joined by a young, talented piper who plays the bagpipes by Dunollie's Castle Ruin: An unforgettable Highland experience.

Depending on the weather, this may also take place beside the 1745 House Museum, so that you may be sheltered from the elements.

The piping lasts approximately 30 min.
