  • A typical Scottish castle with its majestic history. The views are breath taking and you be immersed in the types of lives these people lived.

  • Duart castle was a fantastic stop on our journey. There were areas inside the castle faithfully recreated to look the way they did in the early days including bathrooms, bedrooms, banquet rooms etc. One of the great things about the castle is the views to the Scottish mainland and Loch Linnhe, really, on a nice day the views are unrivalled. Another great aspect of this castle unlike others is your ability to take photographs of the interior spaces. Some others prohibit photography bit here you are free to take as many as you like. The entry was around £10 for an adult with parking on site along with toilets and a lovely little tea room. Well worth visiting.
  • You can take the ferry over to the island and visit this castle that is still lived in. The home of the McLeans and if you have the same last name you can sign the special guest book. We were lucky enough to meet the current head of household there who was on site that day. It is a cool tour to take and you get to learn about the history of the area and the castle. They have even filmed movies here I think one with Sean Connery.
