Explore Auchindrain

Auchindrain 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.



We are open from 1st April to 31st October, 10 am to 5 pm daily.


From November to March we are open most weekdays except over Christmas and New Year, but please telephone to check before you leave home.


In the winter the Visitor Centre is closed and you take us as you find us, but admission is at reduced prices.
