This is quite a small shop, but it's crammed with some lovely gifts and souvenirs, which were much better quality than many of the places we went into and some of it was really different. There's a variety of price points too, so you can...More

We visited as a Group and had the opportunity to hear about the Highlands, traditions and life experiences of Highland folk. Seeing how a traditional kilt is put together and worn was fascinating. The presenter was very informative as well as amusing and managed to...More

The name of the premise bears the word "centre" but this is just an ordinary shop where very ordinary, standards souvenirs are sold. The staff is very indifferent to the customers, they really don't care about the visitors at all. The stuff sold are low...More

This is a little souvenir store at the right side of the boat ride facing Loch Ness. So cool to see for the first time a Scottish at their traditional kilt costume.

Lots of local souvenirs. I think they used to do plays here at one point. Staff were very nice and the building itself is jam packed with souvenirs. It's right beside the boat for the Loch Ness tour.

The centre has live shows to give visitors a real taste of life as an early Highlander. These need to be booked in advance however. Unfortunately our visit didn't tie in with any show availability, but the museum exhibits were still interesting, and the owner...More

You will love this shop if you love Celtic heritage gifts. I loved the plaques with Celtic symbol knots etc. We bought some lovely gifts for ourselves and family back home

An interesting place, but check prices on what your buying as you may get gifts cheaper in the high street of towns your might be visiting. Very busy and crowded so might be a problem if you have walking difficulties. A must through if your...More

I am so sorry not to have responded to you sooner. I was abroad and didn't pick up this until today. Did you pop into The Clansman Centre when you were there? Did you manage to get a show?
