Dunbeath Heritage Centre
The Centre provides a focus for the work of Dunbeath Preservation Trust: a research base; a repository for research data, manuscripts, photographs and items of local material culture; an exhibition and interpretation space; a venue for lectures, storytelling and workshops; a gathering place for local people and visitors - young and old - alike. The Centre has recently been awarded full museum status by the Museums and Galleries Commission in recognition of its professional standards of curatorshIn 2001 and 2008 the Trust undertook major refurbishment projects at the Heritage Centre, including the renewal of its displays and research facilities. We are certain you will find a visit thought-provoking and informative, an ideal place to begin your exploration of Caithness, and we look forward to welcoming you in person!
