Location

Clan Cameron Museum is located approximately 15 miles North East of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands. The museum (open to everyone) is housed in an old, traditional building close to the historic site of Achnacarry.

The "Scottish Baronial" style ancestral home to the Chiefs of Clan Cameron known as Achnacarry Castle (not open to the public) was built in 1802 for Donald Cameron, XXII Chief of Clan Cameron. This replaced an earlier building dating from c1655 which was destroyed by fire in 1746.

Achnacarry is at the centre of a large area of landscape that includes several beautiful places that can be explored by the public on foot, bicycle or car. Quiet roads nearby lead along the shores of Loch Lochy to Clunes and then to the waterfalls at Cia-Aig. There are forest walks and car parking at both these locations.
