Experience the Past Today

Auchindrain Township

A visit to Auchindrain is a chance to see a forgotten way of Highland life. Auchindrain is the last surviving and best-preserved Highland farm township, a type of settlement found across Scotland from the Middle Ages until the late 18th century. Social and economic change arising from industrialisation and new ways of farming then saw most townships improved out of existence, but Auchindrain survived until the 1960s as the last of its kind.

The site is now run as a museum and visitors can explore the land and buildings of the township with the assistance of interactive guide-tablets. Auchindrain is located 6 miles south of Inveraray, on the A83.
