Castle House Museum which has been open since 1998, is one of Dunoon's most historic locations. Dunoon became a holiday resort when Lord Provost Ewing of Glasgow bought the land around the ruined medieval castle and built himself a holiday home. This was in 1824 and many other wealthy businessmen followed his example.
Later a trip doon the watter" at the Glasgow Fair became a tradition. His handsome home, set in beautiful gardens and with fine views of the Firth of Clyde, now houses the Museum on its upper floors.
Picnic in Castle Gardens: the Museum is set in well maintained gardens affording excellent views of the Firth of Clyde and surrounding hills. Putting and tennis also available."
