The Clan Mackay Room is situated in the Strathnaver Museum at Farr Old Church near Bettyhill. Plans are afoot to substantially upgrade the Clan Mackay Room over the next few years. We are in regular touch with the Trustees of the Museum. Rachel Skene the professional worker at the Strathnaver Museum had been working part time in this role since April 2004, but has now moved on to different responsibilities. Brought up in Tongue, where her parents own what was formerly the "Burrs" Shop. Rachel is trained in design and fabric and weaves silk cloths for a select number of outlets. "Skene by name and skene by trade" We caught up with Rachel working with a group of local schoolchildren in the museum in the summer of 2005. They were producing the Strathnaver Times!
The Museum Web Site owes much to the work of our good friends Elliott and Pat Rudie and Jim Johnstone, the Head Teacher of Farr High School, and the web-master Steve Warner.
The Museum address and telephone number are:
