The Victorian Pump Room was really interesting to see how the Victorian visitors to the Spa took to the “healing” waters and advice on their ailments. Part of the Museum has an Old fashioned sweet shop, to bring back memories.

We enjoyed our visit here. Very interesting and informative. Liked the video about Prudence and Delia, and Dr Fox's consultations. Worth visiting.

This is part of a small tourist centre in the old pump room for the old spa in Strathpeffer. It is in just one room but the exhibits are interesting and well worth a visit if you have a spare half hour.

Google maps shows about 6hrs 45 min by car. We went on a coach from Chesterfield, Derbyshire with several pick up stops and other breaks and it took us about 10 hours if I remember correctly.
