Auchindrain Township - Open Air Museum

Step back into the past at Auchindrain, an abandoned settlement nestled deep in the hills of Argyll.

Auchindrain was the last inhabited Highland farming township, a place where people lived and worked from the medieval period up until the 1960s. Townships were commonly found throughout the Scottish Highlands up until the Clearances of the 18th and 19th centuries, when most were destroyed. Only Auchindrain survived, due to its remote location. The buildings which make up the museum's Nationally Recognised Collection are preserved in an authentic condition, and furnished with everyday objects - as you wander through Auchindrain, you are experiencing a way of life which is now lost. A visit to the township may be a trip back in time, but our modern Visitor Centre, shop and tearoom have all the comforts of the 21st century.
