The Clansman Centre

The Clansman Centre

Visit the 17th Century Highlands of Scotland

Entering through the doors of a 19th century schoolhouse, you will take a step back in time to the 17th century. Besides a shop, which specialises in Celtic and locally produced crafts and gifts, we have recreated the interior of a Highland turf house, where an authentically dressed clansman brings the past back to life.

Read more about our entertaining, interactive and informative experience.

A range of fantastic gifts and souvenirs are available to purchase in our quirky craft/gift shop.  The majority of which are made in Scotland.

We are open from:

10.30am – 5pm

Every day from March until October

For evening opening times, see our Facebook page

“I would recommend the Clansman Centre for a visit. Was there in just over an hour and within the hour learned so much about the clansman way of life. One of the highlights was seeing how the kilt was worn. 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 a complicated garment and the weapons of the time could cause so much destruction!”


Due to COVID -19, The Clansman Centre is closed. Please contact us on We aim to open in mid July where social distancing measures will be put in place. Our opening hours will also change. We will keep you advised. Hope to see you soon and in the meantime “stay safe”.
