The centre has live shows to give visitors a real taste of life as an early Highlander. These need to be booked in advance however. Unfortunately our visit didn't tie in with any show availability, but the museum exhibits were still interesting, and the owner...More

You will love this shop if you love Celtic heritage gifts. I loved the plaques with Celtic symbol knots etc. We bought some lovely gifts for ourselves and family back home

An interesting place, but check prices on what your buying as you may get gifts cheaper in the high street of towns your might be visiting. Very busy and crowded so might be a problem if you have walking difficulties. A must through if your...More

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.

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

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?
