Strachur Smiddy and Craftshop

The Smiddy has a long history. The first recorded reference to it was in 1791, and it continued to perform a vital function in the social and economic life of the local community until it closed in the mid-1950s.

The Smiddy at Strachur is unique in two respects. Firstly, for most of its operational life, it was in the hands of the Montgomery family, spanning four generations of village blacksmiths. Secondly, the contents have remained virtually untouched since the day of closure, thus providing a unique record of the technology of the blacksmith and his craft.

Step back in time and find out about the blacksmith and his craft. You'll find implements, artefacts and photogrpahs that give an insight into rural life.
