Armadale, Sleat Isle of Skye, IV45 8RS
Discover the history of the Highlands and Islands through the story of Clan Donald at our award-winning Museum next to Armadale Castle & Gardens. Six interconnecting galleries, each with their own theme, take you through 1500 years of the history and culture of the area once known as the Kingdom of the Isles. The Macdonalds – or Clan Donald – were the Lords of the Isles and sit at the heart of the history of Gaeldom and our Museum follows their story and that of the Highlands.
In the Museum Library you can check if your surname is Scottish and its derivation and meaning. Our collection includes books on tartans, Highland dress, clan histories and much more. If you have ancestors from Skye, or MacDonalds in your family tree, then we may be able to help with your family history research.
