Grantown Museum and Heritage Centre

The true value of a museum is to give an awareness of our roots, enabling us to understand where we are now. Without memory and a sense of belonging, our lives have no meaning.

For Grantown, this memory begins in 1765. Grantown Museum tells the story of the town’s beginnings and is a source of great pride to the people of Grantown. The museum was awarded ‘Commended’ in the Scottish Museum of the Year Awards 1999. Temporary exhibitions are also a regular feature.

The museum hosts meetings of the Grantown Society and houses its archives. It provides research facilities for genealogy and local history. Grantown is the traditional home of the Clan Grant and the museum receives frequent visits and enquiries from Grants across the world.

Music of Strathspey concert

  • 13 May 2016 7:30-9:30pm

What better way to start the weekend, than by enjoying the talents of one of Scotland's finest fiddlers in the home of the Strathspey. This concert is packed full of traditional music and gaelic song showcasing Strathspey's rich musical heritage, and celebrating the Strathspey reel in particular. The dynamic Charlie McKerron trio consists of internationally-renowned fiddler Charlie McKerron from Scottish folk band Capercaillie, guitarist Marc Clement from Session A9 and the vocal talents of gaelic singer Sandra Mackay. Sit back and relax while our fine musicians lead you on a musical journey from the Strathspey's roots in gaelic song and dance right through to more contemporary compositions.
