Attraction Information

Strachur Smiddy is probably unique in two respects at least. Firstly, for most of its operational life, it was in the hands of the Montgomery family, spanning four generations of village blacksmiths. Secondly, the contents have remained virtually untouched since the day of closure, thus providing a unique record of the technology of the blacksmith and his craft.

As a museum, the Smiddy offers the visitor an interesting reminder of times past. For the young visitor, the implements, artefacts and photographs on display provide a valuable aid to learning and give a realistic insight into an important aspect of Scotland's rural history.

An area to the rear of the Smiddy has been developed as a craftshop with exhibition and sale of works of art and craft of local artists. There are a number of pleasant walking trails nearby exposing you to local wildlife.
