Brora Heritage Centre

Village of Brora, Sutherland

Visit Brora Heritage Centre to see an eclectic mix of artefacts, images and stories of Brora’s unique Highland industrial history. There’s even a reconstruction of the old coal mine for you to explore.

Having Britain’s most northerly coal mine, this rich resource fuelled a range of spin-off industries, including the making of bricks, whisky, tweed and salt. Nowhere in the Highlands is there a place like Brora and the centre tells the story of this remarkable hidden gem in Scotland’s north.

Whether you want to plan a self-led visit to the museum to explore our collection or whether you would like to book a facilitated session, our museum staff/volunteers look forward to welcoming you.
