Dedicate a Pictish Fish



We invite you to take part in a Museum first: our very own art installation.


The installation will swirl across the walls inside the main hall of our new building, comprising delicate metal-work fish. The design is an homage to the salmon carving of the Gairloch Pictish Stone, the symbol of the Museum. The stone was the first Pictish symbol stone of its kind to be found on the West Coast, and is thought to have been carved between 500 and 700 AD. The installation will honour the craft of our Pictish forebears and raise a glimmering shoal of these ancient salmon into the air for all our visitors to see.


If you would you like to be remembered as a donor to our new museum, you can now donate one of these fish yourself. One beautiful piscine plaque can be purchased and dedicated for £25. For a larger dedication, our big fish are £50.  Each plaque can hold an inscription of up to 40 characters and can be bought in your own name or as a lasting gift. To do so simply donate using the button below and email the museum with the dedication you would like.

Make a payment, then email your dedication (maximum of 40 characters)
