Auchindrain Township Museum

Edward MacCallum was the last tenant at the Township, giving up the Joint Tenancy on the 1st June 1963. Auchindrain was preserved in 1964, and has been open to visitors as a museum since 1968.

Auchindrain, or in Gaelic Achadh an Droighinn, field of the blackthorn tree, is recognised as being the most complete surviving example of a Highland farm township, a type of settlement representative of much of Scottish rural history.

The site is generally acknowledged as being national significant: it is designated as a Conservation Area; it is Category A Listed in its entirety, and its buildings are a Recognised Collection – one of the small number of collections held by museums other than the National Museums and National Galleries of Scotland that the Scottish Government formally recognises as being of national importance
