FREE ADMISSION - CLOSED 1 NOV-29 FEB Opened to the public in 1980, Corrigall Farm Museum is a traditional 'but and ben' house. It portrays a typical Orkney farmhouse and steading in Victorian times - late 19th Century. The working barn and grain kiln, horse-drawn machinery and livestock make for an interesting visit for children and adults.

This, like Kirbuster museum, is a small but special museum. It takes you back in history showing you how people lived, and farmed, many, many years ago. It shows us how our ancestors worked and lived and the conditions they lived in. Due to it...More

An interesting series of buildings that are free to enter and give you a very good idea of what life was like in a 19th century Orcadian farm. Worth the short drive from the main road.

This free farm museum is a bit off the beaten track though well worth the effort if you have a car. Laid out in 19th century restored farm buildings with plenty of authentic artefacts of farm and domestic life. Car park and toilets provided.
