There is an 'Arctic Convoy' museum recently opened in Aultbea. Some interesting artefacts and good information there. Also true life stories from people who grew up here.

Definitely worth visiting. The hosts are brilliant and and welcoming. Providing a quiz for youngsters that engages them with the museum and its exhibits. Of huge historical interest with regards to Loch Ewe’s value during the Second World War.

A history lesson from the dark days of the 1940's relating to the assembly of naval convoys going to the Arctic circle in appalling weather conditions. God bless the merchant navy convoys & their guardians!

Commemoration of the convoys taking desperately needed supplies to Murmansk during WWII. See where the fleets were based before the highly dangerous voyage. A not well-known bit of history.
