An absolutely fabulous museum. We initially went because our son is Cameron and we were then interested in the Clan Cameron. We actually found ourselves talking to the Chief who was extremely helpful and friendly. As his daughter was one of the bridesmaids at Charles and Diana's wedding, there is a lovely display of her dress and accessories inside. A... More

If your name is Cameron its well worth the visit. We diverted from our walk and were glad we did as a lunch stop. Museum opens in afternoon so we did not wait for that, but the walk past castle ruins, loch, waterfall and the 'Dark Mile' made it worthwhile.

Great value for money. Very interesting. Contains in depth history of the Cameron clan with original artefacts. Also houses original bridesmaid dress from Princess Diana's wedding to Prince Charles 1981. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Highly recommend.

This museum housed in an atmospheric old post office is in a beautiful location and very much off the beaten track. However, if your surname isn't Cameron there is very little of interest to any other visitor. Entrance fee of £5 to a museum the size of an average-sized lounge is bewildering. A lot of flip chart style information with... More

We choose it because it was raining but actually it was a good visit. Set out of the way but in beautiful countryside it is worth a visit. Friendly staff and nice exhibits Fills a couple of hours and also have a wander around the local area

Visited the museum and Castle Cameron with family and friends and members of the CVA and family on Memorial Weekend - as always made very welcome - very informative and interactive - with excellent staff. Met and spoke to the Lochiel himself and his family - a wonderful, welcoming gentleman. HIghly recommended for WW2 commando history buffs and Cameron Clan... More

What a wonderful place! Even if you're not a Cameron, you really should visit the Clan Cameron Museum at Achnacarry. I am a Cameron and was enthralled by this place and felt rather emotional by the history of the exhibition inside. Some of the exhibits are astounding. I was never interested in history as a youngster but the way this... More

If you are a Cameron, and we are ... this is the place to come. Everything Cameron here. It is out of the way, a bit ... but it has a wonderful history. The Green Berets of WWII got their training here ... after the legacy of the Highland Camerons of old. The museum is small but very nice.
