Alford Heritage Centre: Today the building houses an intriguing exhibition of rural bygones which give an insight into the life of the ordinary working people of Donside and NE Scotland. There are many themed displays: the village shop, the tailor and souter (shoemaker), through the schoolroom to the farm kitchen and milkhouse, and further on the chaumer (living/sleeping area for farm workers). The mart arena houses treasures galore, and in the barn you find horse-drawn implements, vintage tractors and a thrashing mill.

Other rooms feature topics such as the activities of the local Royal Ordnance Corps, and the Doric poet, Charles Murray.
