The Camerons have lived in Lochaber since the 14th century. Achnacarry House is the seat of the Clan Cameron and home of Cameron of Lochiel. The Museum in the grounds of the house traces the history of the Clan from through 27 generations to the present day, The Camerons were staunchly Jacobite, coming out in all four Jacobite risings, in 1689, 1715, 1719 and 1745, so the displays have an extensive section on Bonnie Prince Charlie and the risings. In the grounds is the row of trees that Donald Cameron of Lochiel was planting when the messenger from Prince Charles Edward arrived in August 1745.
