Laidhay Croft Museum

Photograph of Laidhay Croft MuseumLaidhay is a two hundred year old rush thatched Caithness longhouse just north of Dunbeath, and is a typical example of the older style of Caithness croft dwellings. These were a familiar feature of the agricultural landscape prior to the improvements of the 18th and 19th centuries. The croft museum incorporates the modified longhouse of the main building - the dwelling, with the stable and byre at each end, the detached barn with the original cruck roof and a cart shed to the south. There is also a modern shed, built to contain the museums large collection of farming implements

If you are interested in crofting history and the rural past, or if you are just exploring the county of Caithness, come to the Museum and see how people lived and worked, and how Laidhay fitted into the local community throughout its lifetime.
