West Highland Museum

Highlands And Islands

Free to all

The West Highland Museum's collections tell the story of the region and its history, most notably that of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite cause.

The museum also holds a wealth of curious and fascinating collections relating to less well-known aspects of the lives of the people of the West Highlands, from the effects of political warfare to the economic impact of tourism in the region, and the coming of the industrial and modern age.
