Stumbled across this whilst visiting Fort William and found it very interesting. It contained lots of information about the local area. Free to enter and the staff were very helpful.

I have never had such nice people greet me at a museum. These ladies are simply fantastic and the museum itself is a gem. Terrific collections for such a small place.

Lots to look at, as well as some interesting things that I did not know about Fort William. There are weapons and clothing from the Jacobite period
