Crail Museum & Heritage Centre

The Museum provides an insight into the past life of this ancient Royal Burgh, its kirk, seafaring tradition, 232 year-old golf club and airfield history (HMS Jackdaw, Fleet Air Arm Station, HMS Bruce Boys Training School and Joint Services School for Linguists).

Crail has been a prosperous and important trading and fishing port since the 12th century, and its picturesque harbour is one of the most frequent images in Scottish calendars and guides. Today there is still commercial fishing from the harbour for crab and lobster which have a reputation for quality. The Burgh is surrounded by excellent farming land.

The Museum also has a well stocked shop.

Free admission to Museum is only possible because of your purchases in the shop and your donations.
