Reopening 1st June 2022 

We are delighted to announce that Auchindrain Historic Township will reopen on 1st June 2022. The consequences of an earthquake that hit the area in November 2021 have led us to adapt our visitor experience due to damage suffered by some of the buildings.  Initially there will be one guided tour at 1:30PM on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, with the possibility of adding more tour times and days if there is enough demand.

Our historic township

Unique, authentic, thought-provoking

 

Step back in time and discover Scotland’s rural history at Auchindrain, the most complete and well-preserved example of a Scottish Highland farm township. Vividly imagine life in the old Highlands as you walk through the settlement and see how ordinary people lived and worked. Step into the restored longhouses, see the objects of everyday life and learn about the past inhabitants. Explore the byres, stables and fields to understand how groups of families worked the land in common. Uncover a fascinating, long-vanished Scottish way of life deep in the hills of Argyll.


Auchindrain is six miles south of Inveraray, just 90 minutes from Glasgow and 45 minutes from Oban.
