    Welcome to Clan Macpherson Museum. You don't have to be a Macpherson to find a visit to us interesting

    Hear about the famous men and women of the Clan who have changed the face of the world: in science, the military, the arts and sport. See the weapons used in days gone-by. Read about mutinies and see the chanter sent down from the heavens.
    Learn about a story of High Resolve, Patriotism, Loyalty and the Jacobite Cause.
    Discover the romance, loyalty and valour of one of the last of the Jacobites: Cluny of the '45 who was hunted for 9 years after Culloden. He hid in caves and he held the horse for the officer who was searching for him!
    Witness the story behind Macpherson's Lament and the broken fiddle: dramatic tales of a 'Robin Hood-like' character celebrated in song whose life was ended by changing the time on a clock.
    See the letter written on 26th July 1689 from Viscount Dundee to Macpherson of Cluny calling for his support in the Jacobite cause.

    We are a Museum Galleries Scotland Accredited museum.
