Attractions and Activities
Waterlines is a visitor centre and museum which stands in restored buildings close to the attractive harbour at Lybster.
Opened in 2001 the centre offers an excellent cafe with facilities for visiting yachtsmen, while on the upper floor is a museum and exhibition area in two large rooms. Outside, beyond the far end of the building, is an array of the rocks found in the north east Highlands, while the end of the building nearest the harbour is set up to show how it would have operated in its days as a smokehouse, curing part of the catch of fishermen operating from Lybster and from neighbouring harbours. Access to most facilities is free though a small charge made for admission to the museum and exhibition area.
Upstairs is a series of exhibits about Lybster Harbour and the local area. The story of fish and fishing forms a core theme, but visiting ornithologists greatly appreciate the live feeds of pictures of birds nesting on local cliffs, from controllable cameras, and there is also a display of casts of fossils found in Caithness quarries.There is also an AV presentation on the story of Lybster Harbour and displays of background information.
