3 Museums to explore in Highland
Highland is a council area in the Scottish Highlands and is the largest local government area in the United Kingdom. Though relatively populous for a Scottish council area, it is also sparsely populated. At 9.0 per km2 in 2012, the population density is less than one seventh of Scotland's as a whole.
The Highland Folk Museum is a museum and open-air visitor attraction. The museum is primarily made up of three areas that represent and interpret three separate eras of the Scottish highlands. While some of the buildings on the museum site were built there, many have been relocated from other places around the highlands and reconstructed onsite.
The West Highland Museum tells the story of the Scottish Highlands and the Islands of Scotland. It aims to cover every aspect of West Highland history, including the that of Fort William, where it is located in a listed building in the centre of the town. It also hosts other exhibits for archaeology and wildlife.
