Situated in the High Street in the heart of the historic town of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands, The West Highland Museum’s collections tell the story of the region and its history. Our most renowned and unusual collection relates to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite cause.
But we also hold a wealth of curious and fascinating collections relating to less well-known aspects of the lives of the people of the West Highlands,

from the effects of political warfare, to the economic impact of tourism in the region, and the coming of the industrial and modern age. Why not explore a selection of items from our collections, learn about the museum and its history, become a member, or sign-up to hear first about our news and upcoming events.
