A wander back in time through a well thought out museum, enjoyed by all ages ( life in the Victorian era ) a must visit. Whilst there we had a meal at the old Railway station ( all home made), made to order, just the job. Perfect food, perfect setting , perfect price and friendly staff

Good way to while away an hour on a rainy day. Lots of old toys and information around how childhood was in the recent past for children in the Scottish Highlands

Museum is very small but very enjoyable. It's in what was a railway station. It will bring back memories for the older visitors

Many of the exhibits have been handed to the Museum by local people. It is touching to see old favourites on display, especially those in the glass case. The "doll drawers" are a must see. In these pull-out drawers, a variety of dolls are on display, some dating back a considerable time. There is a dressing-up area for children too,... More

We stopped here on the way back to Inverness after a trip to Ullapool. It's only small, but offers a fascinating look at Highland life. Beautiful black and white photos, interesting displays and exhibits about - among other things - education, nutrition, toys, child labour. It's definitely worth popping in if you are passing. A family ticket is only £6.... More
