A story of High Resolve, Patriotism, Loyalty and the Jacobite Cause
Due to the current pandemic the Clan Macpherson Museum will be closed until further notice.
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our priority and as such, the Trustees of the Macpherson Museum have decided to follow Government guidance and close the Museum to visitors at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but would invite you to visit the Museum website and the virtual Museum or make contact via our contacts page. We will look forward to welcoming you to the Museum when the coast is clear and in the meantime wish you all well: keep safe!
Discover the romance, loyalty and valour of one of the last of the Jacobites: Cluny of the '45 who was hunted for 9 years after Culloden. He hid in caves and he held the horse for the officer who was searching for him!
Witness the story behind Macpherson's Lament and the broken fiddle: dramatic tales of a 'Robin Hood-like' character celebrated in song whose life was ended by changing the time on a clock.
Believe it or believe it not! You decide about the story behind the creator of the romantic Highlands, James 'Ossian' Macpherson.
See the letter written on 26th July 1689 from Viscount Dundee to Macpherson of Cluny calling for his support in the Jacobite cause.
There is much, much more to see. Hear about the famous men and women of the Clan who have changed the face of the world: in science, the military, the arts and sport. See the weapons used in days gone-by. Read about mutinies and see the chanter sent down from the heavens.
