Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here today. Delightful member of staff called Sheila went to great trouble to show us around and she was so very knowledgeable and interesting.

We visited this small site full of interesting items and information of History in Tain. If my husband was not with me I would have spent All day there. Jason acted as a tour guide and was a mine of information. His enthusiasm shone through...More

We had a great afternoon here. It's a really interesting little museum and Jason, in The Pilgrimage, is incredibly well informed about local history. We had to tear ourselves away after a fascinating chat with him about Pictish history, military history, Scottish history as well...More
