In a national context, it is fair to claim The Highland Folk Museum is unique in terms of its origin, its longevity and it cultural reach. Inspired by European folk museums Isabel F Grant (1887-1983) founded the Highland Folk Museum in 1935 on the Island of Iona, so that “the old setting of our daily life….be saved”. She named the Museum ‘Am Fasgadh’ (Gaelic: ‘The Shelter’) and began collecting artefacts from the fast disappearing way of Highland life.
