Castle House Museum


Castle Gardens, Dunoon, Argyll, PA23 7HH

    Castle House Museum is a historic building set in gardens opposite Dunoon Pier.

    Exhibits, models and photographs tell the story of Dunoon from the Neolithic to the present day such as Highland Mary's Cottage, a Victorian schoolroom, homage to Harry Lauder and the Clyde in Wartime. There is also disabled access and a gift shop.

    Castle House Museum is situated on the hill overlooking Dunoon Pier.  The Castle House itself was built by Lord Provost James Ewing of Glasgow in 1822. Until 1975, Castle House was the Chambers of Dunoon Town Council before housing the former public library.  It is solely dependent on funding from admission fees, shop sales (net) and donations.
