Dunstaffnage Castle and Chapel

Dunstaffnage Castle is one of the oldest stone castles in Scotland. It guards the seaward approach from the Firth of Lorn to the Pass of Brander – and thereby the heart of Scotland. From the rugged battlements of this strategically sited castle you can see how it once dominated Loch Etive.

Built by Duncan MacDougall in the 1200s, the castle was captured by Robert the Bruce in 1309. Flora MacDonald was imprisoned here after helping Bonnie Prince Charlie escape Scotland.

Dunstaffnage Chapel, an extraordinary legacy from the 13th century, is tucked away amongst the trees.

Prices: Adult £6 Child £3.60 Concession £4.80
