Called in on our way back from Eshaness cliffs. Informative displays, well presented. There was a good variety of things to look at, nice little gift shop and tourist information, toilets, a sheltered picnic spot and lovely views. Well worth a visit.

What a great name for a house and it is full of local artefacts, character and interest. Small locally made items are also for sale and at modest prices. Well done to the local group which manages the museum.

The museum focuses on the way of life of the locals over the past 200 years or so. Very much the story of ordinary folk wedded to land and sea. A lot of family information. Honesty drinks and biscuits.

Quaint small little museum housed in a former croft. The museum depicts life as it used to be with plenty of artefacts to view, many hands on!

It is worth a detour from the road to Eshaness to visit this little local museum. It is packed with items of local interest and we spent an hour or so looking around. There is a 'make it yourself' tea and coffee area and also...More

Different aspects of local life are displayed through the years with objects and photos. In addition there are toilets, a walled garden and gifts for sale. We visited on a lovely summer day and the views outside were amazing.

I love the Haa, been here many times, but I always find something new that amazes me, this year it was the transport photos of the vehicles used over the years in Northmavine
