Historylinks Museum in Dornoch was delighted to receive the prestigious VisitScotland 5 Star museum award in September 2009, the only such award in the Highlands and one of seven museum awards in Scotland.
The award cited Historylinks very high quality of displays and the ability to engage the attention of visitors from the very small to very senior with a wide range of subjects in an excellent standard of interpretation.
All past and present Historylinks Trustees, Heritage Society Officers, Members and volunteers share in this notable achievement, which marks a long term programme of development of the museum. Teamwork has been the key to innovation and enhancement in museum displays, exhibitions, publications, film production, the shop and web sites, plus the complementary 'back-room' activities of cataloguing acquisitions, the development of protocols and procedures, and routine administration.
Rather than resting on our laurels the Trust is actively seeking ideas and offers of individual skills for new developments and projects to consolidate the newly won position by further innovation.
