Treasures of the Earth

Treasures of the Earth

Welcome to Treasures of the Earth, Europeís finest private collection of Crystals, Gemstones and Fossils.

You will be amazed by this incredible display, which took nature more than 500 Million years to create.

Housed in an atmospheric simulation of caves, caverns and mining scenes, you will find crystals over a meter tall and geodes over 7 feet tall; fossilised remains from tiny insects trapped in amber to vicious prehistoric monsters like our fossil Mosasaur.

See real Gold and Silver, ancient Petrified Wood, Rubies, Diamonds and Emeralds.

Learn about the largest Gold Nugget ever discovered and the History of the Scottish Gold Rush, and watch crystals magically change colour and glow in our UV Cave.

Come, experience the magic, and wonder which will leave the whole family in awe.

Inverlochy Castle

One of Scotlandís famous castles

When visiting the Fort William area do stop off to look around Old Inverlochy Castle. Although now a ruin this was one of the most important castles in Scottish history and has been the backdrop for two major historical events, the first and second battles of Inverlochy.

The moat that surrounded the castle has long gone but the location at the western end of theGreat Glen and natural defensive postion against the River Lochy gave Inverlochy castle a superior advantage. The old Military Road built by General Wade passed right by the castle and can still be followed back in to Fort William.
