Seaboard Centre

Tain, Ross-shire

The Seaboard Centre has an archive of wonderful, local, social history and they also care for the John Ross Visitor Centre. There you can see an impressive interpretative display on the life and work of the missionary John Ross. The area has strong Korean connections due to its links with John Ross, born in Rarichie, Easter Ross, translating the Bible’s New Testament into Korean in 1887.

The base of the Hilton of Cadboll Stone can also be seen in the centre (the top in the National Museum of Scotland) – a significant and beautiful Pictish artefact. Other local historic items will be added in time to this new facility.
