1,000 years in Tain

21st September 2001 at 01:00
Tain Through Time is an unusual visitor centre which illustrates the history of this Highland town over the past millennium through acting, artefacts and audio-visual presentation. The site includes a traditional museum and a medieval church. You can learn about the pilgrimages to the shrine of Saint Duthac, who was born in the town. Children have a chance to dress up and role play, and you might be entertained by the jester from King James IV's court.
