The museum has just been re-organised and has new audio visual displays as well as the traditional artefacts. It is well put together and the lady in charge can answer any questions you may have.

Situated at Achnacarry where the Commandos trained. There is a Commando Trail to walk around near by. The museum has much on the Commandos but also Clan Cameron and is extremely interesting. The staff are really helpful.
