Opened in 1994, the Carmichael Visitor Centre includes our own Farm Shop, The Carmichael Bistro & Tearoom and the former Edinburgh Wax Model Collection depicting Scotland’s millennium from Queen Margaret and Macbeth through to the present day.

Scotland’s story is told through realistic wax model scenes and informative story board interpretation. The scenes also depict crafts and culture from the countryside in this district. The visitor centre has a ‘Carmichael Clan Room’ dedicated to Carmichael Clan family history and the thousand year period that the family has lived on the land

As well as featuring Scotland’s only wax model collection we have an exciting adventure playground for children and interesting animals including chickens and deer to inspect and enjoy.
