The Clan Gunn is one of the oldest Scottish Clans descended from the Norse Jarls of Orkney and the Pictish Mormaers of Caithness.
The Clan Gunn Heritage Centre and Museum is housed in the old Parish Church, Latheron which was built in 1734. The church was gifted to the Society in 1974 and after considerable fund raising within the clan and with financial support from the Highlands and Islands Development Board, Caithness District Council and The Scottish Countryside Commission it was officially opened on 22nd August 1985.
The Heritage Centre is open from 1st June to 30th September- Mondays to Saturdays- 11.00am to 1.00pm and from 2.00pm to 4pm.

The centre tells the story of the clan from its Norse origins to the present day against the background of the history of the north of Scotlan

Caithness

Caithness in the far North of Scotland is certainly full of wonders. The drive North on the A9 takes in some breathtaking scenery into a land littered with ancient archaeological remains and wide open spaces. You get more time to appreciate the things to see around you if you come to stay here a while and visit the local landmarks and attractions such as the Whailgoe Steps. Its peaceful and beautiful and you get frequent exposure to the Orcas and puffins of the coast in their thousands as well as views of the stunning Northern Lights
