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!

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.

Very cute little building right next to the Cruise Loch Ness stop. I wish there was better selection, but it's a small place so fine for what it is.

The Clansman show is superb. Very informative look back at how people lived, dressed and fought. Delivery by Ken, who is an amazing character in his own right, is funny and I formative. He takes you through dressing up in the tradional feileadh Mor, for the gents, and traditional dress for the ladies. Then shows you actual weapons from the... More

The demonstration in The Clansman Centre was very unique and quite funny. You learn how to wear a traditional kilt and fold it + a live demonstration. You will also learn about the fighting style and the weapons of the traditional clans. Definitely worth a visit.
