A historical overview of what it was like to live in the Highlandsin the 1700’s. It was decorated as if you were in a real clan home. The presentation was excellent.

I’ve wanted a targe for over a decade. A targe is a shield for battle, used by the Scots. They had the perfect one. Glad I found it.

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?
