“Historic blacksmith’s workshop with a lovely local craft shop attached.”

The Smiddy has a long history, the first recorded reference to it being in 1791, and it continued to perform a vital function in the social and economic life of the local community until it closed in the mid-1950s. Aided by Heritage Lottery Funding and other generous grants, as well as local fund-raising efforts, the Strachur Smiddy Trust was able to restore the dilapidated Smiddy building and it is now open to the public as a museum and craft shop.


THE SMIDDY MUSEUM AND SHOP RE-OPENS FOR THE 2018 SEASON ON FRIDAY 30 MARCH 2018

THE SMIDDY WILL BE OPEN EVERY DAY FROM 1-4 P.M. FROM 30 MARCH UNTIL 30 SEPTEMBER 2018
