A place of pilgrimage for Gunns from all over the world, the heritage centre also provides a fascinating introduction to the Norse heritage of Scotland.
The museum covers the story of Clan Gunn, including the clan’s role in the 1745 uprising and the effect of the Highland clearances on society and agriculture.
