Fochabers Folk Museum and Heritage Centre
The museum houses a fascinating collection of gigs and carriages and an eclectic
array of everyday objects showing the way of life and traditions of the north east
of Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The original aim was to collect and preserve personal photographs and memories of
Fochaberians, past and present. What has been achieved is a growing archive of fascinating
photographs, papers and maps documenting the history and heritage of Fochabers and
the surrounding area. The Heritage Centre is an excellent source of local information
for anyone researching their family history.
RAF Dallachy Exhibition
RAF Dallachy was built for Coastal Command in 1942/43 and was home to 144 RAF, 404

of the men and women who flew and maintained the Beaufighter aircraft which saw action
in the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast. Dallachy's worst day was Black Friday,
9th Feb 1945 when 9 Beaufighters were lost during an attack on German shipping in
a Norwegian fjord.
