“excellent museum”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

the museum is at the end of the main street in Newtonmore and therefore very close to most of the accommodation. Even though our heritage is not the clan Macpherson we found it very interesting and relevant to the area. Many of the exhibits are early vintage and following the clan chieftains through the centuries was quite enthralling.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

The amount of information and video was very well presented and easy to understand. There should be a clan centre for all the Clans like this one.

“A Museum for all seasons”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Do not be put off by the unprepossessing exterior. This museum is well worth a visit. Look out for the car park it is easy to miss. If you do there is plenty of on street parking.
Inside the museum caters for all. A quick skim to see what is there or long and in depth research. Once smitten, as I am, well worth a repeat visit and each visit is free! There is both lots to see and fascinating stories to hear about Jacobites and notorious Clansmen.
