Highland Folk Museum

The Kingussie Museum houses the nationally important collection established by Dr Grant and greatly expanded over the years. A wonderful resource, the collections include, furniture, household items, agricultural implements and tools as well as buildings such as the ‘Smoke House', ‘Clack Mill' and iconic ‘Blackhouse'.

The Highland Folk, Newtonmore is a one mile long, eighty acre (32 Hectare) living history site.  The site was bought in the 1980s but did not open until 1995 since when it has been proactively developed and enhanced.

Within sight of the Cairngorm Mountains this interesting and varied landscape site combines farmland, woodland and open areas.   These areas are interpreted through re-located and re-created buildings and features, working demonstrations and live interpreters. The site portrays aspects of 200 years of Highland rural life starting with the early 1700s and ending with the mid 1900s.
