Strathnaver Museum

Strathnaver Museum as viewed from the sky

Located in the ancient province of Strathnaver, scene of some of the more brutal acts of the Highland Clearances, it is unsurprising this is the main story told by Strathnaver Museum. From the pulpit which dominates the main room Rev. Mackenzie was obliged to read out eviction notices in 1819. Of particular interest to those of Mackay ancestry is the Clan Mackay Centre on the upper floor of the museum. Don’t miss the impressive Farr Stone, dating from c.850AD, to be found in the graveyard or the Bronze Age Chealamy Beaker. Free maps available: Strathnaver Trail and Rob Donn Trail.
