About Dumbarton Castle

Dumbarton was the centre of the ancient kingdom of Strathclyde from the 5th century until 1018.

Impressively situated on a volcanic rock overlooking the Firth of Clyde, it was an important royal refuge.

Highlights
• The stunning views – from the White Tower Crag, one can see for miles, including the peak of Ben Lomond.
• The artillery fortifications – fine examples of early 18th-century Georgian military architecture.
• The governor’s house – a fine Georgian residence, housing some interesting artefacts found at the castle.
