HIGHLAND FOLK MUSEUM

Highland Folk Museum is an open air museum dedicated to living and working in the Highlands from the 1700s to the 1960s. Social history is brought to life on a mile-long site which includes more than 30 fascinating heritage buildings at one end, many of which have been carefully moved from their original locations, and a completely reconstructed 1700s township at the other. The museum has featured in several film/TV productions, including Outlander. There is a play area and cafe. Also on site is ‘Am Fasgadh’, which holds some 10,000 artefacts and includes a research library, conservation laboratory and conference facilities.
