Duart Castle stands guard on the east coast of the Isle of Mull, off the west coast of Scotland. The name Duart is derived from the Gaelic words "Dubh Ard" (black point). It stands on a crag at the end of the peninsula, jutting out into the Sound of Mull, just where the Sound of Mull, Loch Linne and the Firth of Lorne meet.
