This was a great place to visit! Really informative. Our sons loved the quiz which really encouraged them to read and look everywhere in the museum for the answers!

Worth a visit, guide is knowledgeable and brings home how fishing has changed. Also highlighted climate change and how this has affected the winter in Findhorn.
