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.

This museum is based on the Clan Cameron estate at Achnacarry. Although it is quite small, a lot of detail is included, along with various exhibits. It details the family history from centuries ago, up to present date, & has a lot of interesting detail about the Clan support offered to 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' & the 1745 uprising. Clan members...

Came here as I'm a Cameron and was curious to learn more about the clan. The museum was what I expected from their website, small and quaint and very interesting. There is a small shop but not a lot that isn't already in other souvenir stores. A huge let down was the customer service. There was a lady working part... More

Whilst we have some distant links to the clan we did not use their archive for research. Not sure if any of the resources they have are on the web, be good if they were. Interesting insight into Scottish as well as Cameron history and we enjoyed the museum. It is a long way off the beaten track but we... More
