Timespan Heritage and Arts Centre is an ideal place to visit if you are looking for historical and cultural things to do with the children. The centre is not only an award-winning museum of social and natural history but also a contemporary art gallery, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Established in the 20th century, the centre provides extensive information on key historical events in Sutherland, including a combination of past local stories and an impressive collection of artefacts. The exhibition programme is constantly evolving, reflecting the diversity of work produced by the artistic community of the North Highlands. When the children need sustenance, simply pop into the convenient River CafЋ for tasty locally-sourced treats before heading out to the idyllic Herb and Geology Gardens for a perfect end to your trip.
