Cateran Ecomuseum

Set across 1,000 square kilometres of eastern Perthshire & western Angus, the Cateran Ecomuseum is a museum without walls – all its sites are outside. Originating in France in the 1970’s ecomuseums, like bioregions focus on the identity of a place (with the term “eco” being a shortened form for “ecologie”). Offering a much more holistic frame for the interpretation of heritage form traditional building based museums, they give equal importance to natural as well as cultural assets and offer a focus for sustainable community development and regenerative tourism.
