a good range of knitwear for everyone. I live in Queensland Australia so not appropriate for my home climate but good to look around.

We enjoyed browsing the interesting collections of local and not quite so local items for sale. The staff members we met had good knowledge of the stock, the shop and the area. It was a pleasure to talk to them.

Interesting collection of original clansmen articles and original tartans and handmade footwear worn back in the day.

It isnt "just a shop". We had a great talk with the highlander who was in charge of the store. He kept us interested in the stories of the highlanders for quite a while.

First visit - and on the very day of its opening for the new season - was lovely. Interesting chat with the staff, who were both very friendly and welcoming. Will come back to enjoy the whole 'tour' the next time we pass through.

I would recommend the Clansman centre for a visit. Was there just over an hour and within the hour learned so much about the Clansman way of life. One of the highlights was seeing how kilt was warn. The time just flew by.

Took in a show here as part of a highlands tour and really enjoyed it. It was a one-man show showcasing kilts and weapons. I don't remember the gentleman's name but he was very funny, informative and engaging. I had no idea kilts were such...More

Nice selection of gifts in the shop. £8 for two adults to see the half hour film was a bit steep given what we got. Film was interesting in parts but there was too much imagery with little historical commentary. What did the 'woman folk'...More

Hi there. Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you didn't enjoy the film very much. As you can imagine it is difficult to cram all the history into 30 minutes and we therefore restricted it so some of the main parts, ie. the...More

Hi there. Thank you for your review. Glad you liked the shop. I assume you and your friend purchased from the Scottish Green Marble range. Lovely jewellery. Hope to see you again in the future.

I am so sorry not to have responded to you sooner. I was abroad and didn't pick up this until today. Did you pop into The Clansman Centre when you were there? Did you manage to get a show?
