Golspie Heritage Society was formally inaugurated on 17th April, 2000.
Golspie Harbour early 1900's
The overall aim of the Society is the advancement of local knowledge and history in our community and to stimulate interest in this area by providing regular meetings and exhibiting materials together with the sharing of materials and knowledge within the community and with other groups and individuals.
A winter programme of speakers and local visits is organised and this continues to be the main feature of the Society's year.
In 2002, an offer came from St. Andrew's Lodge of Freemasons to share their premises in Station Road. This building had been established by Millicent, Countess of Sutherland, as a "Fishermen's Welcome" for the not inconsiderable Golspie fleet at the turn of the 20th Century. The Freemasons, who bought the then vacant property in 1955, were looking for a tenant to share the eastern end - it had been the former caretaker's flat - because they no longer required it for that purpose. In the spring of 2003 a formal lease was drawn up between the Lodge and the Society.
The Society meets monthly during the winter months and organises an exhibition during Golspie Gala Week (usually the first week of August) and the following week.
The Society is run entirely by volunteers.
