Renovation work takes place on Laidhay's famous thatched roof

 

Laidhay Croft Museum near Dunbeath

 

WORK is under way on a £14,000 operation to repair a famous thatched roof at a museum near Dunbeath.

The scheme at Laidhay Croft Museum has been brought forward by bad weather.

Last rethatched in 2013, the roof was expected to last between six to eight years but a run of wet weather has forced the trust that looks after the museum to act now.

Laidhay is a 200-year-old  rush-thatched Caithness longhouse which is a typical example of the older style of Caithness croft dwellings.
