Take-off

Just one-mile north of Oban

lies the enchanting Dunollie

Museum, Castle & Grounds.

For more than 1,000 years,

Clan Chiefs ruled large areas

of Argyll and the Isles from

Dunollie. Today it remains the

ancestral home of the Clan

MacDougall and has become

well known for its fascinating

history, stunning views, warm

welcome and delicious Haggis

Toasties.

Visitors can explore the 1745

House Museum (Old Lairds

House) which displays the

life of the family and servants

throughout the ages. A new

exhibition, My Dear Papa,

demonstrates a century of

childhood at Dunollie through

letters, costumes, games and

artefacts, while the Castle Ruin

boasts beautiful views over

Oban Bay and beyond.

Visitors can join a tour

to discover more about the

history of the clan or listen to a

piper play in the atmospheric

castle courtyard.

Dunollie’s tranquil

woodlands are a favourite for

visitors, featuring unique willow

structures, and the fascinating

Viking-themed Raven Knoll

and Faerie Garden, both

magical spaces for children.

The Weaving Shed is home to

an original 19th-century loom,

and a skilled team provide

weekly traditional weaving

demonstrations.

The Kettle Garden Café

serves light lunches, and

delicious home baking.

Dunollie is open to visitors

from Easter to October.

A slice of

Scottish history

The island landscapes of Skye, Raasay

and Harris are the backdrop to Scotland’s

newest whisky adventure, the Hebridean

Whisky Trail. The new trail has been

designed with intrepid whisky wanderers

in mind, connecting four neighbouring

distilleries – Isle of Raasay, Torabhaig,

Talisker and the Isle of Harris – through

one spectacular 115-mile route.

Set amidst some of Scotland’s most

scenic sea and mountain locations,

each distillery has its own distinctive

character and atmosphere. From the

oldest, Talisker, founded in 1830, to the

youngest, Isle of Raasay which began

production in 2017, all four have unique

stories and approaches to the craft of

making whisky.

After flying to Scotland, the new trail

can be enjoyed by road or by sea with

ferry crossings linking the destinations, as

well as yacht-berthing facilities near to

each distillery.

TRAIL

“If you’re visiting Paris I thoroughly

recommend a tearoom called Angelina

(

www.angelina-paris.fr

) on rue de Rivoli.

It’s very grand with a gold interior,

chandeliers and piano music playing in

the background. The white hot chocolate

is so yummy with a gorgeous slice of cake.

Then you can walk off the calories along

the river to the Eiffel Tower and Notre

Dame. Just perfect!”
