Duart Castle in Lockdown

On the Hebridean island of Mull the residents of the ancient seat of Clan Maclean, Duart Castle, find themselves thrown together as a ‘bubble’ in 2020 during two lockdowns and a brief window when they opened the castle to the public in extraordinary circumstances.

This book is their story. Told by the head guide, Ray Canham, alongside stories and anecdotes from the people who lived and worked at the castle during the year, including the 28th Chief of Clan Maclean, Sir Lachlan Maclean, it is full of funny and heart-warming tales from the front line of the castle, nuggets of history and exclusive insights into the castle and its inhabitants.

Signed copies of Duart Castle in Lockdown are available exclusively through the Duart Castle Giftshop, and the online shop.  A Kindle version is available here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B099X37QCD

All proceeds from the sale of Duart Castle in Lockdown will go to the Duart Castle Restoration Appeal.
