Dunnottar is a municipality in the Canadian province of Manitoba. The Municipality — often referred to as the 'Village of Dunnottar' - is located on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, just off Highway 9, south of Winnipeg Beach. The Municipality encompasses the towns of Ponemah, Whytewold, and Matlock. These centres grew around Canadian Pacific Railway stations. It borders the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews, in addition to Lake Winnipeg. It is known for its beaches & many summer residents & visitors.
Overall, the trend is towards increasing numbers of permanent residents.

In June 1947 it was announced that the area that became the Village of Dunnottar would have a meeting to create the municipal government. The meeting was held at 177 McDermot Avenue in the city of Winnipeg. Municipal elections were held later that year in November, officially becoming a Village as of January 1, 1948.
