  • This is a museum with a difference it's well worth a visit indeed, several visits there's so much to see. A fascinating collection of historical interest. Don't hesitate - book now
  • Wonderful Village Museum. A Best Place to Learn Scottish Cultural Background. Free entry and free ample parking. But better than some places with tickets. A must place to visit in Highlands. Highly recommended.
