When we visited Dunollie Castle in Oban, Scotland 2013, we also visited the 1745 House Museum. The 1745 House was the first home of the chiefs of the clan MacDougall, built when the family left the castle. Once the North Wing and later the Admirals House (The Main House) were constructed, the 1745 House became the Servants Quarters. The main house, behind the museum is private and you are guided away from it when you visit the castle. There are quite a few rooms to view in the museum, both downstairs and up, with many interesting artefacts to have a look at. You start downstairs in the kitchen and then going upstairs you find a love story.
The following photos will tell you about the love story……..
We then come to another interesting story and again the photos will tell you the story…….
I nearly missed the story on the blue card about the portrait, so glad I didn’t….. nearly a ghost story, but not. The last room we visit is the ‘Simple Room’
I wanted to make the post have the feeling of a museum visit, where you read the cards and learn the history. I understand there are new items to see at Dunollie, a weavers cottage and gardens, so I think a return visit is required 🙂
The main house.
