Displays at Highland Folk Museum, Kingussie

The Highland Folk Museum in Kingussie began as an exhibition in Inverness. Dr Isabel Grant, the collection's founder, had become aware of the importance of folk museums after a trip to Scandinavia. In 1936 she moved her collection to Iona and from there to Laggan in 1938. The collection was moved to its final home in Kingussie in 1944 and Dr Grant named it 'Am Fasgadh' which means 'the shelter'.

The six-acre site at Kingussie has extensive collections of everyday domestic objects including furniture, domestic tools and agricultural implements. There is also a reconstructed Black House, the 'Clack' Mill and a smoke house. This photograph shows a collection of weapons displayed in the museum, including knives, swords and guns
