Highland Museum of Childhood

Located in a restored Victorian Station, built in 1885 in the Spa village of Strathpeffer, the Museum tells the story of childhood in the Highlands amongst hardworking crofters and townsfolk, where money and luxuries were scarce, and life followed the rhythm of the seasons; a way of life recorded by oral testimony, displays, and evocative photographs. Our own award-winning video “A Century of Highland Childhood” is also shown.

The Pump Room

A visit to the last remaining pump room of the former Spa complex at Strathpeffer gives an idea of the procedures endured by those who came to “take the waters” at the beginning of the 20th century. Unfortunately, 21st century health and safety regulations no longer permit sampling of the contents of the sulphur or iron wells lying deep underground.
