Some time later the opportunity arose to purchase a former butcher’s shop in Aultbea to create an exhibition centre.
This website is part of the Russian Arctic Convoy Project, which aims to create a multi-site museum around the shores of Loch Ewe dedicated to the Arctic Convoys. The Exhibition in Aultbea has an extensive collection of convoy artefacts, pictures, photos, models and more are on display.
Loch Ewe was a hive of activity during World War 2 and it was the point of departure for many of the convoys bound for Russia. A lasting legacy to those who braved Arctic waters under constant threat of attack from enemy aircraft and u-boats is the Museum and Exhibition Centre established oriiginally in the former Inverasdale Primary School and now in a dedicated centre located in Aultbea.
