Education & learning

Foghlam & Ionnsachadh

Access, enjoyment and education for all lies at the heart of our mission. We use our estate and Museum collections to promote active learning about the history of Clan Donald and the Highlands & Islands.

We inspire the next generation to learn about, get involved in and value local culture and traditions. We offer Museum tours and hands-on activities for local schools, which can be tailored to suit the needs of the class. We also work with children and young people on specific projects.

Our Museum trails are designed to encourage children of all ages to discover and enjoy the collections. In the school holidays we offer regular family activities which are open to all. From time to time we invite historians and other expert speakers to give talks linked to our exhibitions and collections, often working with our local history socities. See our Events pages to find out what’s on.

Clan Donald Lands Trust also has a long history of promoting the musical traditions of the Highlands & Islands. We support local clarsach (Highland harp) tuition and have provided twelve clarsachs on long-term loan to local schools. The Trust also sponsors piping and clarsach competitions.
