Tel: 01431 821327



Museum Admission: Adults £4 | Concessions £3.00 | Children £2.00 | Family tickets £10.00

Timespan relies on its own income generation to keep going – the income we make from the museum admission fees, the shop and cafe go towards keeping the centre open and generating many exciting arts and heritage activities for our community. We are a not-for-profit organisation and a major employer in the area – any profit made is put straight back into the arts and heritage programme.


Find Us

Timespan is an easy day out from Inverness (less than 1.5 hours by car), or a convenient stop on your way North. We are within 5 minutes walk of the bus stop and train station, and have our own car-park. We are on the John O’Groats to Lands End cycle route and also the gateway to discovering Caithness. Make your way inward to the heart of Sutherland and its stunning North coast and stop with us on your way South.
