Duart Castle is an impressive castle perched in a commanding position on a rocky promontory overlooking the Sound of Mull. The castle dates back to the 13th century and is the ancestral home of Clan Maclean. This stunning castle with its impressive fortifications has witnessed a turbulent history. It was reduced to a ruin in 17th century. The castle was restored in 1911 by Sir Fitzroy Maclean and now boasts an impressive great hall and richly decorated state bedrooms. There is also an exhibition room of clan artefacts, tearoom and gift shop. You can also take a walk along the top of the keep for some fabulous coastal views, and enjoy a coastal walk around Duart Point.
Duart castle is located in the south of Mull, a short distance from the ferry terminal at Craignure. It is best reached by car and taking the ferry from Lochaline to Fishnish. Head along A849 towards Craignure and follow signpost to Duart Castle.
