Located in the former Parish Church of Farr we tell the fascinating story of 8,000 years of human occupation in north-west Sutherland. We tell the story of the people, their culture, and the landscape that surrounds us in the context of the brutal early 19th century Highland Clearances.

Our eclectic collection includes an intact Bronze Age burial beaker, early 19th century croft house display, tools, agricultural and fishing exhibits, including the gruesome dog skin buoy, militaria, Clan Mackay memorabilia, and contemporary art.

Disabled Access

The Annex building is fully accessible while the main building is partially accessible as there is no wheelchair access to the 1st floor due to the historic nature of our building.
