1. Highland Folk Museum

The Highland Folk Museum was founded by a remarkable woman, Dr I.F. Grant, in the 1930s. Using her own funds, she toured the Highlands collecting domestic utensils, furniture, farm implements and machinery in order to preserve a way of life that was fast disappearing. She called her museum Am Fasgadh, a Gaelic term meaning The Shelter, since her aim was “to shelter homely ancient things from destruction”.
