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.

Needs more than the hour I had available - excellent modern museum. New acquisitions and great displays. Wish we had more time to go around with the audio guide.

The Clan Cameron Museum is off the beaten path but we were so glad to find it. It's small by most standards but it's evident that it is lovingly maintained and cared for. Captivating exhibits about the Camerons. The gentleman working there was friendly. Peaceful setting. We recommend that travelers make the effort to visit.

When you walk there you can almost feel the presence of the old commandos there. And on top, it is a very beautiful area with spectacular views!

We visited the museum on our return from a trip to Loch Arkaig, hoping to find the Jacobite gold ;-) Achnacarry is less than an hour from Fort William and easy to visit if you find yourself there. Let's face it, the best thing to do if you find yourself in the Garrison is leave it.. It is located on... More

You have to go the distance to find this, But it is worth it A small museum on a nice spot. You should look at the Cameron house, that is close by. Really nice museum.
