Experience the Past Today

Auchindrain Township

Auchindrain is the last remaining, best-preserved example of a farming township, a type of settlement lived in by the people of Scotland's countryside for nearly 1000 years. Changes in industry and farming, as well as the Highland Clearances, meant that most farming townships had disappeared by the late 19th century.

Explore the buildings of Auchindrain and immerse yourself in the lives of those who worked and lived here. Auchindrain is 6 miles south of Inveraray, on the A83.
