Our latest news and activities.

Tain & District Museum is home to an extensive and varied collection of objects, photographs and archives of local, regional and national significance. Because of the relatively limited exhibition space, only a small proportion of the collection is on display at any one time. Our website allows us to make more of the Collection accessible to all.

We welcome Rosses from home and abroad. Find out about Clan Ross history and latest news of Clan activities.
