We found the team very chatty and helpful when we arrived and left us to wander around and examine hundreds of items to illustrate many centuries of Scottish clan history. Will interest even non Macphersons like us!

All round great fun. The kids loved the dressing up box which left us to really get to grips with the fascinating displays. We didn't quite have time to finish so will definitely need to go again.

Very interesting place if you're a Macpherson. Good little film to watch. Lots of reading as you go round the museum

I've passed the Clan Macpherson Museum countless times over the past 30 years or so, and never taken the time to visit ...until now. Small, very well laid out, and thoroughly informative material - a helpful, well-spoken and informed Highlander was available to answer our...More

A lovely little visit, the staff are friendly and helpful, although we didn't have any children with us, we noticed that the staff gave them activities to do around this museum.

great museum, friendly staff. It is free entry, but I bought something to support them. Even though my maiden name is Macpherson, I still learnt loads about my clan. Really worth a visit, even if you haven't got any Scottish ancestors.
