The Museum of the Isles at Armadale, Isle of Skye, is an excellent facility which, although primarily focused on Clan MacDonald affords the visitor the opportunity to drill down and connect with not only Clan MacDonald but wider Western Isles and Scottish history dating back over the millennia.

The village of Armadale is located close to the Southern tip of the Isle of Skye in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides. Armadale has a high throughput of visitors because it is a ferry port providing a regular link (about 30 mins crossing time) with Mallaig on the Scottish mainland opposite.Although there are hotels and B&Bs in the area, Armadale is, essentially, a transit point as a function of the ferry link.

Loch Carron, a sea loch on the west coast of Ross and Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. This loch separates the Lochalsh peninsula from the Applecross peninsula, and from the headland east of Loch Kishorn. It is the point at which the River Carron enters the North Atlantic Ocean.
