Journey from Strathnaver’s mystical past, through the emergence of the Clan Mackay to the tragedy of the Highland Clearances…

Discover the vibrant culture, inherited from Norse and Gaelic ancestors. Strathnaver Museum is a heart which keeps the blood of tradition pumping; sustaining and preserving it for future generations.

Opening 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we have taken the decision to remain closed for 2020 to protect our staff, visitors and the local community.

We feel that given the difficult nature of our historic building the risks posed to staff and visitors are to great to be in a position to open in the current circumstances. We are deeply disappointed but look forward to welcoming you all back in the future to our refurbished museum. If you would like to contribute to our Crowd Funder do check out our great offers via the link below.

Disabled Access

Limited access, no ramp due to tomb stones at front entrance. A small wheelchair is available for use in the downstairs main room.  We also have a ‘tour of the museum’ on DVD which can be viewed outwith the building.
