Now OPen!

From 16th August to the end of October we will be open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 11:00am to 4:00pm, last admission 3pm.  Subject to demand we may open more or less days, but any changes will be announced here and on social media. 


Visitors who have not booked in advance will be asked to complete a “track and trace” form on arrival.  
Two-metre social distancing is expected, and please follow queuing instructions. Entry to all buildings is limited to one social group at a time. 
Face masks must be worn indoors.  
We strongly prefer contactless payment, but will accept cash.   
Toilets for use by visitors are available. These are cleaned several times a day, but not after each use. Cleaning products are provided in each cubicle, and you are expected to sanitise the facility yourself before and after use. 
Hot and cold drinks, confectionery and pre-packed snacks are on sale in the Visitor Centre. Our picnic area will be open and you are welcome to bring your own picnic, including a blanket or tablecloth.

Unique, authentic, thought-provoking


Step back in time and discover Scotland’s rural history at Auchindrain, the most complete and well-preserved example of a Scottish Highland farm township. Vividly imagine life in the old Highlands as you walk through the settlement and see how ordinary people lived and worked. Step into the restored longhouses, see the objects of everyday life and learn about the past inhabitants. Explore the byres, stables and fields to understand how groups of families worked the land in common. Uncover a fascinating, long-vanished Scottish way of life deep in the hills of Argyll.

Auchindrain is six miles south of Inveraray, just 90 minutes from Glasgow and 45 minutes from Oban, making it an ideal place for a day out.
