Atholl Country Life Museum

Atholl Country Life Museum

Description

Deep in the heart of Highland Perthshire, lying sheltered by the hills of Atholl, is the village of Blair Atholl, where the meeting of the rivers Tilt and Garry have witnessed so much of life over the centuries.

Here in the Atholl Country Life Museum, once the village school, you are able to capture that life of the past and learn about the great characters of the area, their skills and achievements, not only in the community but far beyond.

There is Scotland's only stuffed Highland cow, Trinafour Post Office reconstructed, a local roadman's home-made contraption that he used to paint the first white lines on his beat near the Queen's View.

There are many stories of local personalities, such as Sgt. Major Donald MacBeath of the Atholl Highlanders, gamekeeper, hero of the Crimean war and admired by Queen Victoria.
