Gairloch Museum recently relocated to a former nuclear bunker in the centre of Gairloch.  The museum tells the story of the people and landscape of Gairloch and the surrounding area from Mesolithic man to crofting communities.   Highlights include the original lens from Rubh Re lighthouse, a replica croft house showing how people used to live and an interactive gallery about the natural world, midges and all!  Also on show are the first Pictish stone found on the West Coast mainland and the Poolewe Hoard – a rare Early Iron Age bronze hoard found locally.
