More about

Gairloch Museum is located in a former nuclear bunker and showcases the history, culture and natural heritage of this beautiful area of the North West Highlands. Displays include the original lens from Rubh Re lighthouse, a replica croft house showing how people used to live and an interactive gallery about our magnificent natural world, midges and all. The museum’s collection of works of art has developed since the founding of the museum into a diverse portrayal of the region’s rugged landscape, communities and way of life. Works of note include 'Washing, Gairloch' by Donald Macintyre, whose work is included in the collection of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, and a series of watercolours by Finlay MacKinnon, who trained under the patronage of prominent figures such as Sir Kenneth Mackenzie and Osgood Mackenzie of Inverewe.
