The "show" put on at the Clansman Center is not to be missed. We were entertained by Anthony for 1.5 hours. We sat in a... reproduction of a Highland home from the 1500's while he regailed us with stories and information about how the highlanders lived. The highlight was showing how the original kilts were put together as he dressed 2 from the audience. Do not visit Ft. Augustus without going to this gem. Call ahead for show information.read more
Visited today after a recommendation and it was superb! The presenting clansman shared his knowledge, and gave us a... glance into clan history, with incredible knowledge and humour. Whilst audience participation isn’t obligatory I’d highly recommend getting involved, it’s a unique experience and really good fun.read more
We did a clansman show today. The show was very elaborate and fun to watch. The man who gave the show was very kind and... was a fountain of knowledge. Got to learn a lot!We were with a small group, so everyone got the chance to dress up in Highland clothes. Definitely reccomend this shop and show!read more
My family ended up with a private showing just 2 days ago. The show was an unexpected find and was just wonderful. Two... lovely brothers run the centre and Anthony does the theatre. He knows everything about the highland history and it was extremely interesting and entertaining. Would highly recommend and the ticket price of 6.50 is really great value. Do fit this in to your visit of Fort Augustus. Thank you David and Anthony for a rare treat.read more

I went to this many years ago where we were shown how the people in the Highlands lived, it was a fantastic experience.... This time we missed it but staff were kind enough to show us the exhibition place behind the curtain. We missed the show. Shame they aren't supported to run shows every day.read more
Sometimes overlooked by tourists, this centre is worth a visit. In addition to the nice products and wares that are... sold, the centre passionately demonstrates and exhibits authentic highland tradition, history and relics. It provides a valuable insight into the local Scottish clans and their history, how they dressed and fought, and how they endured everyday life amongst themselves, between their foes, and against the elements.read more
Great little gift shop selling a range of items including some hand made and Scottish items.I do have to comment about... the negative review by John McKenna. I was there at that time and it had nothing to do with how the lady was dressed. There were a a big group of Chinese tourists who were blocking one side of the doorway which is the only entrance to the building and this lady on the other. I couldn't get in! The staff member kindly asked the people to move to one side so it allowed access but this lady unfortunately had a chip on her shoulder and mouthed off at the young man and pushed her way out. The guys here have to put up with a lot of abuse from visitors whether they be Scots or foreign and its wrong. So giving them a 1 star because of this is in my opinion is unjustified.read more
Rude and disrespectful. While at entrance doorway I was getting my husbands attention to let him know I was going in I... was told to move and get out due to health and safety reasons. Probably more due to the fact that I had just walked some of the Great Glen Way (for a charity)during storm Callum and wasn't looking my best. Waited a few moments and observed several well dressed tourists linger st the same point, none of who were asked to move. I am Scottish.read more
