As you roam through our 11 period buildings and wander over our grounds you’ll find much to see and do, and you will gain an understanding of the love our Gaelic Ancestors felt for this land, and the work and dedication required to make a life in this new home. Our costumed staff give an intimate understanding of the daily lives of our Gaelic ancestors, and give you an opportunity to see what life was like for the Scottish settlers from the mid 1700’s through to the early 1900’s.
