Auchindrain, or in Gaelic Achadh an Droighinn, field of the blackthorn tree, is recognised as being the most complete surviving example of a Highland farm township, a type of settlement representative of much of Scottish rural history.The site is designated as a Conservation Area, it is Category A Listed in its entirety and its buildings are a Recognised Collection – one of the small number of collections held by museums other than the National Museums and National Galleries of Scotland that the Scottish Government formally recognises as being of national importance. It's a fabulous place to explore. You can spend some time walking aorund the site, see inside the houses and learn about the history of the place and the people that lived here. There's also a visitor centre and tearoom, which is open in the summer.
