About Tain and District Museum and Clan Ross Centre

Tain Through Time allows you to open the door to the history of Tain, this ancient Royal Burgh in the Highlands of Scotland.

Set in a complex of three buildings; the medieval St Duthac Collegiate Church, the Tain and District Museum, and Clan Ross Visitor Centre in an old schoolhouse.  All within an atmospheric churchyard where you can experience hundreds of years of history, from the Bronze Age Ardjachie stone with its Pictish carvings to Viking burials and a medieval saint-inspiring age of Pilgrimage.

The Museum is home to an extensive and varied collection of objects, photographs and archives of local, regional and national significance.
