The Highland Folk Museum has transformed 300 years of history by recreating a thriving 1700's township, of heather thatched turf houses with open peat fires, furnished with box bed and traditional cruisie lamps. A working croft still stands with horses, cattle, ducks, tractors, hand pumps and farm machinery and the teacher rules in the old, tin Highland school!

At this award winning museum, a Victorian water powered sawmill has been brought back to life along with a clockmaker's workshop, tailor's shop, 1950s summer house and post office.

Interpretive Guides in period costume bring history alive, whilst old favourites are available in the 1930's sweet shop during the summer months. The introductory audio visual (19 minutes) welcomes you, and facilities include a gift shop, cafe, children's play areas and picnic sites with spectacular views of the Cairngorms, all located throughout the site.

Wheelchair access to toilets, cafe and Audio Visual.
