The 1745 House currently maintains two historic collections which offer two very different learning tools:
- Clan Collection: Covers from the Dalriada period right up to the present day
- Hope MacDougall Collection: Provides a wonderful Social History Collection
We are currently developing a range of education packs for use by local primary schools based on their current resources. The first two packs – ‘My Home’ and ‘Conflict’ are currently being piloted by our onsite practitioner and will be available for use within the schools in 2015. A further two packs will be developed and ready to use by August 2016.
The woodland landscape at Dunollie offers a fantastic resource for learning about the past. We are currently piloting the outdoor activities which will be available as of spring 2015.
The following topics will be available:
Early Years – Argyll’s First People or Fairytale Adventures
Primary – Past Detectives (Clues exist to tell us about the culture and society of past peoples)
Secondary – Environmental Art or How to build a Castle
General site visits can be arranged to include access to the 1745 Museum and also include outdoor activities.
These visits can cover a wide range of topics and can be used alongside the education packs.
Visits to the site can be tailored to the need of your historical topic.
