The Highland Folk Museum brings to life the domestic and working conditions of earlier Highland peoples.
Delve into the past and discover the real, living Highland Folk Museum. Visitors to this living history Museum can learn how our Scottish Highland ancestors lived, how they built their homes, how they tilled the soil and how they dressed, in a friendly and welcoming environment.
Set in a one mile long, 80 acre site, live actors and restored buildings help bring Highland history to life. The museum not only encapsulates human endeavour and development in Highland life from the 1700s to the present day, but offers an opportunity to explore a beautiful natural setting, home to red squirrels and tree creepers. Visitors of all ages can have a fun, perhaps nostalgic, experience, perhaps have a go at an activity or craft, feel the weight of an object, experience the 'reek' of peat or just enjoy a walk through the site looking out for red squirrels.
Families can spend 3-5hrs exploring the Museum, and there are picnic and play areas, cafe and shops on site to cater for all needs.
