This small, locally run museum offered an interesting insight into local history and had a wide range of artefacts. Whilst it was well sign-posted we found the actual entrance difficult to find

This is a small museum 'in the middle of nowhere' and may be assumed to be an amateurish effort suitable only for a rainy day. This would be wrong. Although small, it packs its space with interesting and informative displays and information. It's worth a trip if you are in the area, and you can happily spend an hour or so learning about the local history. An excellent attraction and well worth a visit.

They have packed quite a lot into this museum, including surprisingly the lamp from a lighthouse. Just the thing for an hour or so on a rainy day.

This small museum uses its space (mostly an old stone building) well, to explain the history of the area (geology, flora and fauna as well as human). It does it with clear text which gets the message across simply. You will learn what made Gairloch and its people and read and hear some of the memories of those who lived there. It is fascinating and a good example of what a local museum could and should be. It is run by volunteers - do visit and help it to continue to flourish.
