Dunrobin Street, Helmsdale: history, buildings, and people

Saturday 8 July 2023

Saturday 8th July, 11-1pm 

Curated by Jacquie Aitken, as part of the PMA

Helmsdale was built in 1815 by the Sutherland landowners to provide employment opportunities for the displaced tenantry in the developing Scottish fishing industry. Dunrobin Street became the commercial centre, with shops and hotels running the length of the village, with interconnecting lanes leading outwards in all directions. Join us for a virtual tour of the buildings along Dunrobin Street, uncovering their history and the people connected to them. Guest local contributors share stories and memories.
