  • This place needs updating. Lots of information but its so badly displayed and in such a small area. Not comfortable place just to walk round as its like walking round someone's lounge. Hard for people...  more »

  • Very extensive museum about the family and it's history. As the MacPhersons were involved in many historic events of Scotland, the museum effectively gives a nice overview of a large part of Scottish history. There is an introductory video, a gift shop, guides with translations and countless original family possessions. If you are near Newtonmore, spend some time here and be amazed.
  • Very detailed history on view and well worth a visit.
  • Wonderful curator, wonderful little museum!
  • Best clan museum ever, you find there the Clan Macpherson history detailed and with some very interesting historical items.
  • Lovely wee bit of family history. So interesting if you know you have even a wee bit of McPherson in you.
