Guided Tours of Dunollie
Follow one of our Tour Guides and immerse yourself in Dunollie's History from the Iron age, to Somerled and the birth of the Clan MacDougall, throughout the Jacobite uprisings and until the present day.
Tours last approximately 1 hour and take place almost entirely outdoors.
Please note, the second half of the Tour involves going up the steep castle path.
Piping at the Castle
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.
*Please Note: The path to the castle is steep and requires a reasonable level of fitness
