There are working looms and the atmosphere of a busy factory.

Visitors can be fitted for and photographed wearing full Highland Dress outfit and experience the fascinating history of Scotland's National Dress.

The building also plays host to a number of businesses including Scottish gift shops, Travel agents and The Military Tattoo shop.
