Not much left of the home of my ancestors, so many hundreds of years ago. Very pretty view and having a small museum nearby is nice. Castle crumbled and some of it was used to build 19th century "castle/museum" . Still fun to see where...More

Even a freezing cold and wet day the views from the hill are great. The castle wasn’t open but we sneaked in for a peak and what we saw was really nice. A large semi circular stone staircase leads up to the museum, and there...More

We were staying at ZHunter's Quay holiday camp and Dunoon is the nearest big town ( Morrisons, Coop, small shops etc) The castle is set high opposite the Victorian pier. In July it had attractive flower beds and several seats to sit and people watch....More

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!

The outside is pretty sitting on top of a small hill but don't expect a great big sombre castle. Inside you will find the story of steamers and a little of Victorian life around the area and a little of the very early settlements. It...More

Was well worth the climb up to see the stunning view. Site of old castle, nothing really visible any more.

Not quite a castle of grand proportions. A pleasant walk up the hill and nice views, but not very special. If you are in Dunoon it's worth a visit. There is however not a place to base a trip to Dunoon on.
