Local history


The Gairloch and Loch Ewe area has an interesting and diverse history, from iron and bronze age hut circles, to world war II sites to crofting heritage. 


For a journey through time showing how people lived and worked in Gairloch through the ages visit the Gairloch Heritage Museum which is open from April to the end of October Monday to Saturday.  Call 01445 712287 for opening times.


Loch Ewe was a world war II military base (and is still used for military exercises) and there are several old war sites around the edge of the Loch.  For a good overview read Loch Ewe during World War II which can also be purchased at the Gairloch Tourist Information Centre.
