Kirbuster Museum

Birsay

Kirbuster Museum was opened to the public in 1986. It is the last un-restored example of a traditional 'firehoose' in Northern Europe.

The house has a central hearth and a stone neuk bed, a unique survival. Kirbuster was occupied up until the 1960s and was once the home of the Spence and Hay families.

The site also has an Edwardian parlour and Victorian Gardens. The 'implement shed' contains a collection of farming memorabilia. Visitors can enjoy a game of putting on the green and also explore the new Trowie Trail in the back garden.
