The Highland Folk Museum is 80 acres of living history fun for all the family. There are over 30 buildings for you to visit - ranging from a 1700s Township at one end through to a working croft at the other. The pinewood is a recognised hot-spot for red squirrel spotting.

Ruthven Barracks was built after the failed Jacobite uprising of 1715 to maintain law and order. A 300-strong Jacobite attack failed to take the barracks in 1745, but a more heavily-armed attack the next year forced the barracks’ surrender. The Jacobites rallied at Ruthven Barracks after their defeat at Culloden before conceding.
