“Take Time To Visit Castle House Museum.....Well Worth It”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Wouldn't visit Dunoon without visiting the Castle House Museum. Always find something new every visit. Brilliant laid out, telling the story of Dunoon and surrounding areas. Brilliant now and then video to watch. Displays change every year ive visited. John Stirling is a brilliant source of knowledge, always happy to answer any questions you have.
Every one should visit at least once, but worth many many visits.

My past family history is here in the west of Scotland. With no prompting from me, a staff member carried out a little research on my family,now this has awakened an interest!

“Excellent little museum”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Very interesting to see and read all the information about the Clyde steamers, which used to ply all over the place to so many places of interest along the mainland coast and the islands. Well worth a visit. Friendly and informative staff on hand to help.

“An audience with ... John Stirling”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

This museum of the History of Dunoon, under the devoted management of a very knowledgeable John Stirling, is a haven on a wet day, and a hive of information, reminiscences and school photos to browse, ponder and ooo & ahhh over ... and if the staff like you - you might get a cup of tea with them!
