Visited here during our National Holidays trip to Dornoch. Pleasantly surprised at the content of local history for such a wee place. The lady at the desk was most helpful with our queries. Definitely recommend.

Good accurate account of the Royal Burgh of Dornoch. Special mention of the golf links and the light railway. Learned quite a lot. Not expensive and worth a visit.
