The Colintraive Heritage Centre in Scotland is now closed until April 2023. Thank you to everyone who visited our centre this year and for all your appreciative comments.
The centre opened on May 9th, 2009, after much challenging work. This provided the community with a permanent space to celebrate and share their local history and heritage. This free museum is popular with residents and visitors who often describe it as a “hidden gem.” The work of many volunteers from the community ensures that we continue to research and record the heritage of Colintraive. The museum is not staffed.
You will find displays with research, photographs, and map covering discover the history and heritage of the people of Colintraive. Here you will gain an insight into the working lives and leisure activities of residents and visitors of the past through the collections of agricultural implements, domestic artefacts, film clips and personal stories.
We would like to thank Argyll and Bute Council, Heritage Lottery, The Cruach Mor Wind Farm Trust, and Scottish Natural Heritage for their grants towards building conversion and the creation of displays.
