As a wee child I lived in Dunoon and I remember climbing the hill many times to sit and take in the beauty of the area. This was a must-do for me on my recent trip and it did not disappoint. Go see Highland Mary!

It's not really a castle, the small grounds are nice the views are nice but the building is fairly new, it looks more like a stately home.

I loved Dunoon, the entire town was just lovely. The people especially, they were so nice! I could buy a little cottage there and live forever!
