Dunstaffnage became the temporary prison of Flora MacDonald in 1746.The location – stand on the battlements, overlooking the Firth of Lorn, and see just why the MacDougall chief built his castle where he did. The formidable curtain wall – amongst the oldest standing castle remains in Scotland. The ‘new house’ of 1725 in the courtyard – perhaps where Flora MacDonald was held prisoner. Dunstaffnage Chapel – tucked away amongst the trees, an extraordinary legacy from the 13th century. « less

We are however open for volunteers, we are always happy to hear from like minded people who are willing to give their time. Sadly we had to close to the general public two years ago after the council decided we would need a zoo licence to be able to admit the general public. We still work hard every day with the birds who come into the sanctuary. « less
