My father and myself came from Canada. We had a couple of this when we came to Scotland as MUST do's. This happened to be one of them. We are Cameron's, my great-great grandfather was born just outside of Fort William. Upon arrival there is a lady waiting at reception, knitting away, she asks if we are Cameron's. We both reply yes, wondering what else there is in store. Nothing.... I show her the tattoo that I had made up depicting the genealogy of my forefathers. It has a little bit of this that and the other thing. She looks at it and with disgust shakes her head, says "ugghh, that'll be £7.00".
Thanks a lot, you made me feel quite good there. Then she goes back to the knitting, I started asking a question, she gets up and walks away. I have waited about 8 years or so ( after learning more and more about our past) and i must say, unfortunately i could not get out of there fast enough.
The actual museum was OK. Quite a bit about our past. The whole commando theme was definitely ran with, couple other good stories.
If you are looking for kilts or other good souvenirs to buy, don't make this trip just for that. Couple shot glasses and other tid bits, but nothing much.
