There's a unique experience waiting for you at Lybster Harbour. In a simply delightful setting, the beautifully restored buildings house a visitor centre, an exhibition full of information, hands on activities, refreshments and facilities which offer something for everyone.
From May onwards, when the braes are covered with primroses, there is so much to see and spectacular views to photograph in and around Lybster Harbour. There are also delightful and nostalgic walks up the old 'fish paths' - routes used by the fisherfolk from other harbours to bring the herring catch to Lybster for curing.
The years of the herring fishing which really put Lybster on the map and projected the village into the national limelight as one of the most important fishing stations in Britain are told in the exhibition. The number of workers in boats in the harbour during the peak years of the nineteenth century are almost unimaginable today. The story is one full of endeavour, hardship and sorrow which reveals the true spirit of the people of Lybster.
There's so much to see and do in the exhibition that afterwards you'll want to relax with some refreshments, and just absorb the whole atmosphere and ambience of the harbour. If the weather is favourable there's no finer place than the flagstone terrace. We hope you enjoy your visit.
OPEN DAILY FROM MAY TO SEPTEMBER - 11AM TO 5PM.
