Felt authentic, had the celtic cross I'd been looking for the last 2 weeks, handmade head wraps for kids and a GREAT antler collection that had the rubbed off end. Salesman was a true clan man, or at least gave that impression!

This small operation is mighty in cultural aspects. Learn all about the various Clans and Celtic Crafts. It's right on the Canal and is nice place step into and learn something new.

The actual kilt used in Braveheart is used to dress up a member of the audience and demonstrations of real weaponry then follow (without bloodshed). This was value for money and our kids loved it.

The building is great and the room where the presentation is down looks great. The gift shop has the usual Scottish souvenirs, but also has some great deer antlers! I wish I could have carried some back with me!

Came to the clansman centre with my girlfriend on the hope the show was going to be good, well we certainly were not let down. Old Ken as they called him was so interesting in the history of Scotland and knowledgeable about the custom, history and weapons that's the scots used! The setting is very dark and gives you the...

Lovely boutique for buying all things Scottish and ken does a historic and humorous show that instructs on all matters of Scottish life from Kilt wearing to slashing someone with a Claymore.

Ken was fantastic; he showed us how to make and wear a traditional Scottish kilt. He also showed us the weapons that would have been used and how to use them (eeeeww). There were also lovely souvenirs to buy.
