The Highland Folk Museum brings to life the domestic and working conditions of earlier Highland peoples. Visitors to this living history Museum can learn how our Scottish Highland ancestors lived, how they built their homes, how they tilled the soil and how they dressed, in a friendly and welcoming environment. An award winning visitor attraction, the Museum not only encapsulates human endeavour and development in Highland life from the 1700s to the present day, but offers an opportunity to explore a beautiful natural setting, home to red squirrels and tree creepers. A great day out for everyone! NO ENTRY CHARGE - DONATIONS WELCOME!!

Unfortunately, due to the inclement weather and the risk of high winds we have had to close the pinewoods and the township today. The rest of the park is open as usual. We apologise for any inconvenience and we aim to re-open it as soon as possible.
Last week Rachel, one of our curators, went along to celebrate the opening of the new V&A Dundee. We have objects from our Travelling Communities collection on show in the new museum, which is very exciting.
We would like to wish everyone at the V&A Dundee good luck and if you are visiting them soon, keep your eyes peeled to see if you can spot any of our objects!
As one event finishes, another looms large in the calendar! On Tues at 2pm we have our tour of Am Fasgadh, our collections store and then next weekend we have the Am Fasgadh Quaich and Doors Open Day, it's all go here! Check out the poster below or take a peek at our website for all our autumn events!
Thank you to all our spinners who came along today to join in with World Wide Spin in Public Day. It lovely to see so many different types of spinning wheels and drop spindles, we even had two visitors who came all the way from Kent and diverted their planned tour to come and visit us to join in and spin!
We hope you enjoyed your spinning today - send us your pictures if you were spinning elsewhere in the world today!!
