Some lovely and interesting pieces on display and worth paying a visit however, it is quite small inside and we found 45 minutes generous time including the gift shop. Shop prices were not cheap but staff friendly and knowledgeable.

An interesting place to visit once on the way to glenfinnan viaduct while you're there. £5 might not be great value for money if you consider the size of the place but there is still some really nice things to see. The staff is very helpful, friendly outgoing and smiling - I felt really welcomed there. Also, the gift shop... More

Not very big and you wouldn't spend more than 30 minutes/1 hour here so not suitable for a full day trip. Has about 6 fossils but has 1 and 1/2 floors of interesting gems/stones/metals. Centered around the gift shop though. Staff are nice and well informed. Take a right next to the co-op across the road and you can then... More

Amazing displays of precious and semiprecious stones, au naturel. Enormous natural emerald. Some of the pieces of stones are over 6 foot tall. Lots of interesting things in the gift shop. Takes about an hour or so to get round.

We went to visit Treasures of the Earth as part of our trip to Fort William. My husband uses a mobility scooter and he was made very welcome, he could move around very well and saw everything on the ground floor. The crystals are truly lovely, the Fossils very interesting. I was not sure at first as what it would... More

Beautiful place to go visit, beautifully arranged fossils and crystals to see. You could spend a good hour in there to take up all the information, £5 each to go in which I think is a good price 👍. Lots Amazing things to see, they also have a gift shop at the end where you can buy other fossils and... More

We visited Treasures of the Earth as part of an organised trip on a Shearings holiday. We were welcomed warmly on the coach and given an explanation about what we would see inside. All I can say is that we didn't have enough time to see everything and it was a fantastic exhibition. There was something for everyone and I... More

The outside gives one the appearance of possibly being just a touristy place to visit. However, this is one of the most fascinating gem museums I've ever visited. It is very well laid out inside, with well lit displays and information placards. The adjoining shop has a huge variety of gifts. The owners were very nice and took time to... More

An interesting place to visit on a wet day. All under cover, with a display of crystal and gems. These are set in a cave like display. Dark and mysterious. There is a very good shop with bargain buys. Huge selection of gifts and even a free gift if you spend over a certain amount. Car park available.
