This is part of a small tourist centre in the old pump room for the old spa in Strathpeffer. It is in just one room but the exhibits are interesting and well worth a visit if you have a spare half hour.

Had an hour to fill. Spent quarter of that at the pump room. Very nice and helpful lady on entering. Some useful tourist information available. Maybe there was more to it than we saw.

Google maps shows about 6hrs 45 min by car. We went on a coach from Chesterfield, Derbyshire with several pick up stops and other breaks and it took us about 10 hours if I remember correctly.
