As many will know the Vault and Gallery have been open for some time and we are pleased to announce the addition of a Local History Room depicting the history of the area, the associated clans and the local estates up to the present date. It can be found by following the path to the back door and going up the stairs to the former Acharossan Gallery.
We look forward to seeing visitors and would love it if you were to give us your feedback directly by e-mail.
All areas are open twenty four hours every day of the week.
On the Weekend of May 31 to June 2 the MacEwen Clan held what was believed to be their largest gathering in one place this century. It provided an opportunity for the members to meet their Commander, Sir John McEwen and to sign a petition of support for his appointment as Chie, to be submitted to Lord Lyon.
On the final day a packed Church witnessed the “Kirkin O’ The Tartan” accompanied by the skirl of the pipes.
