HistoryLinks Museum

The museum is dedicated to the history of Dornoch parish. The permanent exhibition shows the Cathedral, feuding clans, the shameful burning of Scotland's last condemned witch and the treachery and violence of Picts and Vikings. Current displays show a golf professional's workshop where Donald Ross honed his skills, an unusual insight into Andrew Carnegie at home in Skibo and historic objects and local tales to give a precious insight into the lives of ordinary, and not so ordinary, Dornoch folk. There are several unique films including Sutherland in 1950 and The Dornoch Light Railway. There is much to involve children with puzzles, quizzes and dressing up. If all else fails you can lock them in the stocks! Starting from HISTORYLINKS is a trail that leads gently through 16 sites of particular historical interest with accompanying guide maps and booklets.
