Found this wee place by accident and so glad we did. Really interesting museum. Beautifully laid out. Admission is free but they rely on donations so please give generously. There was a lovely lady who volunteers there. She was very helpful and full of interesting information. Please visit here - you'll love it!

Tales of the local Pict's and some of the wonderful items that have been unearthed, the explanation of some of the symbols they used, Play a Pictish Harp or just take in the storyboards or visit their small shop.

Stunning artwork. The Pictish stones are beautiful and in such good condition. They are very well displayed at the museum and the patterns on the stones stand out well.

This is a tiny museum packed with interesting info, the stones were impressive and the interactive displays informative. There is even the chance to try out some rubbings with paper and crayons which my girls liked.

Knew nothing about the Picts until I went to this small treasure of a museum. The gentleman who worked here was beyond friendly and knowledgeable. He shared and taught us so much about the exhibits and history. Worth a stop...parking right around the corner.
