Guglielmo Marconi conducted Scotland’s earliest radio experiments here in Fraserburgh.
The replica shack in the Centre was originally sited in view of nearby Broadsea village.
The scenes from the windows of the shack are what Marconi and his workers would have viewed.
Another building later used by Marconi is shown as 67 Broadsea in this 1861 map. .
We hope you will enjoy seeing the various communications equipment,
and trying your skill with the Morse key.
