The Scottish Fisheries Museum

Situated in a wonderful collection of historic buildings on the harbour of a small and beautiful fishing port, we are a charitable trust which has become a national institution with an international reputation.

The principal aim, in all of the efforts with regard to the displays in our extensive museum and our many educational and research activities, is to excite informed interest in the development of the Scottish commercial fishing industry among people of all ages in and beyond Scotland. The core story that they have to tell is the history of how, through a constant process of innovation, the Scottish fisheries became such an important part of the lives of so many Scots.
 
The collections are truly inspiring. They permit us to exhibit wonderful examples of historic fishing boats and gear. Illustrateing the geography and social structures of the fishing communities.
