Dornoch Historylinks Image Library

More About This Site

Dornoch Historylinks Museum is a Registered Charity No. SC008747

The Dornoch Historylinks Image Library was launched on 1 June 2008 with start-up funding for the project provided by the Dornoch Heritage Society. The aim of the image library is to provide public access to images and basic details of the complete catalogue of objects in the museum collection.

At launch the image library contained 4,000 images approximately 60% of the catalogued objects. With matched funding provided by Museums Galleries Scotland the museum embarked on a project to enhance library images and to complete the backlog of image capture, by photography and scanning, for the full museum collection to be available on this site. The project was completed by the spring of 2009.

To date the site has 12793 images.

Historylinks Museum gained VisitScotland 5 Star Museum status in September 2009, the only independent museum in the Highlands and one of seven museums in Scotland awarded 5 Star grading. The Museum also gained Museums Libraries Archives Council accreditation in autumn 2009.

Financial Support

Please consider a donation to Historylinks Museum. 

We face a 50% reduction in our annual maintenance grant from the Highland Council effective from 1 April 2017. This will create a £6,000 hole in our budget and unless we can overcome this annual loss, the existence of the Museum will be at risk.

Our Image Library attracted 17,800 sessions in the past year, with 12,055 visitors to the website (38% new) and a mean of 6.91 pages viewed during each session. This data indicates we have good reason to believe that the Image Library is appreciated. 

If each visitor could donate as little as 50p annually we could eliminate the hole in our budget and thereby sustain the Museum. As a form of 'crowdfunding' it would be greatly appreciated if our visitors could make a Paypal account, credit or debit card donation using the Paypal Donate button on the homepage. 

The amount gifted is at the discretion of the donor and all financial support will be gratefully received.  Thank you
