Dunollie Museum, Castle & Grounds is an internationally recognised centre for Scottish culture and heritage and home of the World-Wide Clan MacDougall.

Dunollie is located about 1 mile north of Oban along the coast, in an area known to have been inhabited for at least 8,000 years.

Perched on a cliff and surrounded by stunning views across Oban Bay and the Isles is Dunollie’s medieval Castle Ruin. In the oldest part of the Laird’s House below is our 1745 House Museum, displaying textiles, a Highland Social History collection as well as Clan MacDougall material and archives. Dunollie’s Historic Woodland Grounds surround the 1745 House and Castle Ruin.
