Duart Castle - Tour to the Isle of Mull
About this tour
Duart Castle or Caisteal Dhubhairt in Scottish Gaelic is the main castle on the Isle of Mull. The castle dates back to the 13th century and is the seat of Clan MacLean.
The castle stands on a crag at the end of the peninsular jutting out into the Sound of Mull at the intersection of the Sound of Mull, Loch Linnhe and the Firth of Lorne and within view of the neighbouring castles of Dunstaffnage, Dunollie, Aros and Ardtornish, part of a chain of castles up the Sound of Mull to Mingary Castle.
This circular tour, which can be operated from any point on the route e.g. Oban, Fort William, and Ballachulish - incorporates some of the most spectacular panoramas on the West Coast of Scotland - including the wild ruggedness of Morven, the benign shoreline of Loch Linnhe and the majestic seascapes around the Firth of Lorne.
Return to the mainland is via the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry either at Fishnish (if travelling in the direction of Fort William) or Craignure (if travelling in the direction of Oban).
The 2017 promotional rate for each passenger, inclusive of all ferry fares (including the Highland Council ferry at Corran) and entrance to Duart Castle is £14.50.
