Dunollie Volunteer Groups

Visitor Services

Our visitor assistant position can involve a variety of tasks from staffing the ticket booth, stewarding the 1745 House Museum to leading daily tours to the castle.

Garden Group - Grounds and Maintainence

Dunollie's grounds offer plenty of opportunities for budding gardeners such as weeding of invasive species, planting and growing, tree thinning, shredding, path maintenance, pond clearing and caring for our willow structures.

Threads and Yarns

The Threads & Yarns Group enables craft enthusiasts to get together to share their creative skills and talents.

The group meets weekly at the Rockfield Centre to make items inspired by our collections to be sold in our Old Drapers Gift Shop.

The group also works to create protective items to help preserve our ancient textile collection.

We welcome those who have never attempted sewing before to those who have had years of practise.

Come along and enjoy a cup of tea and some sewing fun!

The Archive Group - Collections Management

The Archive Group carefully catalogue and record all of the written documentation at Dunollie, this is an important role, with which great care must be taken.

It is unusual for a museum to allow volunteers to handle such documentation, however Dunollie feels that such skills can be valuable for individuals with a keen interest in the area.

Full training will be provided and a probationary period is required.

The Curatorial Group - Collections Management

The Curatorial Group is responsible for the safe care of the objects within Dunollie.

This can range from delicate object handling to emptying dehumidifiers , taking part in specific object maintenance programme and ensuring correct conditions are maintained.

Full training will be provided and a probationary period would be required.

Dunollie Weavers

Dunollie Weavers meet every Monday in the Weaving Shed to work on our recently reconstructed full size pattern weaving loom.

Throughout the season, they give demonstrations to visitors and are working towards creating the new Lorn Tweed.

No experience is required, just an eagerness to learn.
