Gairloch Heritage Museum project secures key funding
Gairloch Heritage Museum has secured funding to help it relocate to a blast-proof former Cold War building in the Wester Ross village.
The museum sought new premises due to a lack of space and because its lease was running out after 2018.
It has been awarded £725,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund towards converting an Anti-Aircraft Operations Room (AAOR).
The building, built in the 1950s, is known as the Old Radar Station.
In more recent years it was used as a roads maintenance depot.
Highland Council has approved the museum's plans and its managers hope the lottery funding will be a "catalyst" for further funding awards.
