A great resource for the island, clearly a lot of work has gone into documenting the interesting history of the community. Also love the whale bones!

The Sperm Whale outside is amazing in itself plus fossilised stones are worth the visit before going inside. Nice modern facility with lots to see and all very relaxed next door to the hotel for lunch or a short walk to chippy (Wednesday and Saturday).

We stop here as part of our island tour. Still setting up for the new tourist season but still an informative 20 minute.
Whale bones in the garden were good.
This is the home of the Westray wifey.

A wonderful heritage centre & museum with some first class displays and a very well stocked gift shop run by a team of friendly helpful staff.

Amazing displays but I was mainly interested in the archive room where I spent a happy few hours looking at all the binders of information and photographs. I was thrilled that I found a picture of my Great Great Grandfather and pictures of a few other distant relatives.

This Centre is well worth a visit and its World War 1 tributes are especially moving. It is a small island so the losses must have been devastating for the community. You can spend an interesting hour or so here and see the Whale bones in the garden.

The little Westray Heritage Centre at Pierowall is beautiful.
It is small, as expected on a small island, but very well presented, informative and educational.
It was interesting to learn that the tiny Westray community lost 38 (!!!) of its sons in WWI.....You wouldn't think that such a remote war would have such an impact on this little island.
There are some archaeology displays, some island history, a partial skeleton of a beached whale (Impressive!!) and additional exhibits.
The little shop is also neat and worth visiting.
Lovely Museum!! Worthwhile!!

Go here to see the Westray Wife. Lot of history of local people in the wars, story of post man is good. Skeleton of beached whale outside is something to behold!
