Strathnaver Museum

The Strathnaver Museum is located to the east of Bettyhill/Am Blaran Odhar in Sutherland and to the south of the A836. The museum looks at the history of the area and the inheritance left by Norse and Gaelic ancestors. The museum is open from April until October Monday's to Saturday www.strathnavermuseum.org.uk. The museum is housed in the former church of St Columba built in 1700 and has archaeological artefacts. Outside of the church stands the elaborately carved 'Farr Stone' which dates from between 800 to 850AD and there are earlier stones within the museum. Booklets are also available from the museum with a guide to The Strathnaver Trail which starts at the museum and takes in 29 sites of historical interest including Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age, Pictish carved stones and pre- Highland Clearance townships.
