Fourteen museums from across the Highlands of Scotland are taking part in Highland Threads. The virtual exhibition showcases a treasured costume from each of the museum's collections, alongside stories of the people who made the cloth, who wore the clothes and where they were produced.
Garments knitted in the Gairloch pattern, a dress embellished with the elytra of the jewel beetle, and a fisherman's Gansey are just a few of the fascinating items in an innovative online exhibition exploring the history of people in northern Scotland.
