Castle House Museum

The Castle House Museum opened in 1998 and is one of Dunoon’s most historic locations. Castle House was built by Lord Provost Ewing of Glasgow in 1824 as a holiday home for himself. Dunoon then became a holiday resort, with many wealthy businessmen copying the idea.

There are exhibits, photographs and models telling the history of Dunoon and Cowal, from the Neolithic period to the present day. There are displays on Highland Mary, Cowal at War, the Victorians and Going “Doon the Watter”.

The museum was set up by the late Arthur Allen and is now a registered charity, which is operated by a trust and run by a team of volunteers.
