Gairloch Heritage Museum takes you a journey through time in the north west Highlands. Take the opportunity to discover the culture, heritage, traditions and customs of our beautiful area from pre-historic times to the present day.
Marvel at the massive lens of the Rubha Reidh lighthouse, see the interior of a croft house and traditional village shop, and discover an illicit whisky still. Examine the locally built and owned fishing boats and discover the rigours and strains of earning a living from the sea. Relive the life of a crofter, using basic tools and with no electricity or running water.
With a wealth of exhibits, interactive displays and things to do, prepare to be propelled into a past world from the Bronze Age, through crofting, the Jacobites, and traditional industries such as fishing to the present day people of the Highlands. You can also make an appointment to use the library and archive and delve into your family history.
Gairloch Heritage Museum is open from April (Easter if earlier) until the end of October, between 10am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 11am - 3pm Saturday.
