One of the best museums to be found in the highlands. The history of Tain silver is fascinating in itself, and there is so much more. Only a small base but so much information gathered by the volunteers and manager. Remember to check out the pilgrimage for more history.

There is a lot of information to be gained about James IV and his pilgrimages to the saints tomb with the added incentive that his mistress lived nearby. That's in the Pilgrimage section whilst the museum section is well worth your time.
