UK»Scotland»Northern Isles»Kirbuster Museum

Kirbuster Museum is the last un-restored example of a traditional firehoose in Northern Europe. The house has a central hearth and a stone (neuk) bed, a unique survival. Kirbuster was occupied up until the 1960s and was once the home of the Spence and Hay families. The site also has an Edwardian parlour and Victorian Gardens. The implement shed contains a collection of farming memorabilia. Visitors can enjoy a game of putting on the green and also explore the new Trowie Trail in the back garden.
