Attraction Information

Tain Through Time is within the churchyard where there is a Pilgrimage: a thoroughly modern visitor centre experience housed in a delightful 17th century schoolhouse! The juxtaposition of ancient and modern are blended well here, though, with sympathetic restoration and development keep the spirit of the place intact throughout.

The Tain and District Museum and Clan Ross Centre hold between them a splendid collection of artefacts, documents and images which tell the story of the people of Tain and District. The displays vary annually to reflect differing elements of the region's rich history.

The remaining building is found by the Pilgrimage entrance and that would be the shop! Worth a look around as there's a nicely educational range as well as the souvenirs. It's worth noting it's also 3 floors tall, but there's a wheelchair lift (and a wheelchair accessible toilet) available.

There's a CD-guided tour of the town and that epitome of medieval-ness: the St Duthac Collegiate church! A seriously impressive and atmospheric joy to explore. The church and churchyard section of the tour is about 20 minutes long, but if you do the whole village tour it's more like an hour.
