Welcome to Groam House Museum

Our lovely museum is an outstanding centre for Pictish and Celtic Art in Ross-shire. The unique display is focused on 15 carved Pictish stones which all originated in the village, an important centre of early Christianity. The sculptures are amongst the works of Pictish Art that inspired George Bain, the ‘father of modern Celtic design’, most of whose surviving artwork is in the care of the museum.  The George Bain Collection has been awarded the status of a Recognised Collection of National Significance by Museums Galleries Scotland, the first and only one in the Highlands. The pride of the permanent display is the magnificent Rosemarkie cross-slab, decorated with enigmatic Pictish symbols and Christian crosses.

3 April - 31 October:  Monday - Friday; 11.00am - 4.30pm, Saturday & Sunday 2.00pm - 4.30pm
