Clan Macpherson House & Museum **

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

A museum dedicated to the fascinating story of Clan Macpherson, a clan which since the 1100s has had strong roots in the Badenoch district of the Highlands. The museum itself is one that even a casual visitor could spend a 

considerable time exploring. The visitor learns that the clan name came from the Gaelic Mac-a-Phearsain meaning "son of the parson". It dates back to the appointment of Mhuirich Cattanach, the 4th Chief of Clan Chattan, as parson of Kingussie in the 1100s. His second son was the first person to carry the name Macpherson.
