As part of a Coffee/Tea stop we managed to have a look at this quaint craft museum. Beautiful authentic detail of days long gone. The bonus Tea/Coffee Cakes in the nearby Tea room Amazing views

Tea room next door to croft very nice indeed. Costs £2.50 to enter croft, with a leaflet to explain, that you give back. Croft full of exhibits, giving you a feel for the living conditions and life of a crofter.

What a contrast! I never expected to find on the same roadside site off the A9 in the Highlands, just north of Dunbeath, home-made cream scones with jam, fine China with old earthen pots and farm in primitive living conditions nearby. We pulled into the...More

We stopped at the Laidhay Croft Museum for a cuppa and very nice it was. Lots of homemade cakes and snacks to choose from. Sit inside or outside depending on the weather. There is also a loo. Very friendly ladies are awaiting to greet you.

Pay £2.50 in the tearoom, and you can borrow a paper guide to help you identify some of the zillions of artefacts stored in these buildings. Carts, medals, beds, coins, fly swat, bicycle...... There is so much to see, and the atmosphere of being a...More
