This is very well hidden in the forest, but it is well worth the trouble getting there, reall interesting particularly if you have got Cameron blood in your veins .

We have visited this museum many times, and love the fascinating displays of artifacts, unique to the Highlands of Scotland, and Lochaber in particular. Clan Cameron were staunch supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie and fought bravely with other Jacobites in the final battle against the English. This museum covers this history, but has a variety of other interesting displays. For... More

Does not open till 1.30 pm which we never realised. The woman was late opening the museum, she was not at all friendly or welcoming, not much Highland hospitality here.

An absolutely fabulous museum. We initially went because our son is Cameron and we were then interested in the Clan Cameron. We actually found ourselves talking to the Chief who was extremely helpful and friendly. As his daughter was one of the bridesmaids at Charles and Diana's wedding, there is a lovely display of her dress and accessories inside. A... More

If your name is Cameron its well worth the visit. We diverted from our walk and were glad we did as a lunch stop. Museum opens in afternoon so we did not wait for that, but the walk past castle ruins, loch, waterfall and the 'Dark Mile' made it worthwhile.
