For a great day out that families and single travellers alike will enjoy! Dunollie Museum and Castle is a world-recognised Scottish cultural centre.  Being one of the oldest surviving cultural sites in the country, it is really a unique place to visit. It is believed that the area had been inhabited for around 8,000 years.

How do I get to Donollie Museum and grounds?

The site is located just off the A85, around 1 and a half miles from Oban town centre.

The site is located just 1 mile from Oban town centre and sat upon a cliff overlooking Oban bay and the western isles. When at the castle ruins, visitors can see the oldest surviving area of the site, which is the 1745 house museum. This museum celebrates Scottish textiles, Highland social history and of course Clan Mcdougall archives.

The facility is open from April to September to visitors. However, events do take place throughout the year. The site is managed by the Mcdougall of Donellie preservation trust. This means that all proceeds to the castle and museum go straight to the restoration and upkeep of the site. So why not make your way down and see Scotland throughout the ages. The Castle and Museum acknowledge that your contributions go towards keeping this beautiful site open to visitors into the future!
