Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Strathpeffer, Scotland. In the Victorian era Strathpeffer was popular as a spa resort, owing to the discovery of sulphurous springs in the 18th century. The pump room in the middle of the village dates from 1819. Soon after that, a hospital and a hotel were also built. The Strathpeffer Pavilion dates from 1880, and was built to provide a venue for entertainment of the visitors. The railway station closed in February 1946. The Clach an Tiompain, in English, the Sounding Stone or The Eagle Stone is a small Class I Pictish stone located near the northern entrance of Strathpeffer. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
