A fantastic exhibition and shop.  The exhibition houses one of the largest private collections of examples of rocks from all over the world.  Whether you are a geologist or merely interested to see the fascinating range of colours and textures it is well worth the stop at Golspie.  Samples for sale range from pennies to hundreds of pounds.  It costs 1 to enter the exhibition.
The fsamily business was established by Anne and Don shelly in 1970.  The collection has fine mineral specimens from all over the world. and a separate section for Highland rocks, minerals and fossils and except for the National Museums is probably without equal in Scotland.  there are displays of fluorite and haematite from British mines, Scottish agates and huge amethyst geodes.
A unique collection of semi-precious stone spheres and a special fluorescent minerals room.  A geological relief model and diorama of the Assynt district of Sutherland and other materials.
