Reliving the past
Standing proudly on a cliff top guarding the Sound of Mull, Duart Castle enjoys one of the most spectacular positions on the west coast of Scotland.
Visitors can relive the past with a walk through the ancient keep, visit the dungeons where officers of Tobermory’s Spanish Galleon were imprisoned, and take a journey back through the ages in the exhibition of clan history where many objects of historical interest are on display. In 1911 Sir Fitzroy Maclean repurchased and restored the castle, which is now occupied by Sir Lachlan Maclean, 28th chief of the clan Maclean.
Subject to availability, Sir Lachlan Maclean himself will be pleased to welcome you to his fabulous 400 year old castle and home which is the clan seat. Enjoy a tour of the castle at your leisure with your guide on hand to answer any questions.
