Friends of Armadale Castle, Gardens and the Museum of the Isles

Friends of Armadale Castle, Gardens and the Museum of the Isles

The Annual Meeting of the Friends of Armadale Castle, Gardens & Museum of the Isles will take place at 4pm on Saturday 9th September 2017 in the Wee Cafe, The Stables building.

Armadale Castle, Gardens and the Museum of the Isles is operated by the Clan Donald Lands Trust, a non-profit charitable organisation. It was established in 1971 with the aim of promoting an understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of Clan Donald and the Lordship of the Isles. The Trust purchased the last remaining 20,000 acres (8000 hectares) of the once vast MacDonald lands. They have acted as custodians of the land, and developed high quality facilities for all people interested in the conservation of Highland heritage.

These facilities include the Museum of the Isles which collects, preserves and makes available information on Clan Donald, the other Clans of the Lordship, and the West Highlands and the Isles of Scotland. The Trust also preserves the remains of Armadale Castle, and oversees the tending and development of the historic Castle gardens.

By professionally managing and maintaining these resources, the Trust provides members of Clan Donald, the other Clans in the Hebrides and West Highlands, and the general public with the opportunity of learning about their individual and shared heritages in a beautiful setting overlooking the Sound of Sleat.
