Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds
Dunollie Museum, Castle and Grounds is an internationally recognised centre for Scottish culture and heritage and home of the World-Wide Clan MacDougall. The site is managed by a registered charity, The MacDougall of Dunollie Preservation Trust, and includes a medieval Castle Ruin, perched on a cliff and surrounded by stunning views across Oban Bay. In the oldest part of the Laird’s House below, is the 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. The site is open annually from April to October for visitors, and special events take place throughout the year.
“The staff and Trustees at Dunollie are delighted to have been included in this wonderful project to help prepare and train the next generation of young people for work in the museums of Argyll. With many thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting the initiative, we look forward to getting underway and recruiting the Dunollie Curatorial Apprentice.”
