The Clan Donald Center, the ancestral home of Clan Donald, was the focus of our morning in Armadale. The small but informative museum provided a historical overview of the Lord of the Isles, a line of nobility from a mixed Viking-Gaelic ancestry that ruled over the west coast and islands of Scotland until the 15th century. The ruins of the Armadale Castle are not far from the museum. Constructed in 1815, the castle was burnt down in the 1850s. The center also has fine gardens and nature trails, providing us with a peaceful place to stroll throughout the morning.
