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

We enjoyed browsing the interesting collections of local and not quite so local items for sale. The staff members we met had good knowledge of the stock, the shop and the area. It was a pleasure to talk to them.

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?
