Buckie and District Fishing Heritage Centre

If you are in the Buckie Area, we extend to you a warm welcome to visit us at the Heritage Centre. You will discover the unique fishing history of this lovely part of the Moray Firth.

We have a very extensive range of photographs which depict all aspects of the fishing industries which flourished here in the past.  Our collection is in excess of 8000 photographs and includes most of the BCK and BF boat registrations and some other neighbouring registrations.  In addition you will find photographs showing the gutting quines, coopers and many other items relating to the heritage of Buckie and District.  There are numerous artefacts on display and a splendid collection of model boats ranging from Scaffies, Zulu boats, Drifters and Motor Fishing boats.

Visits may be arranged to the Heritage Centre by groups and visitors during the close season by contacting a member of the Committee or by leaving a message at the adjoining Public Library.  We welcome visits by organisations or groups outwith our normal opening hours. The Heritage Centre can accommodate up to 50 visitors at any given time. We can provide simple refreshments and all visits are without charge. Donations are however welcome.

Please call and have a chat with the members who are on duty and who will only be too happy to assist with any enquiries you may have.
