It has been a number of years since we were last here. Bought a few things. they do have a nice assembly of tartan/Scottish things and we did not do the museum itself.

Everything Scottish: This museum has hundreds of Tartans for sale as well as family history. Touring the museum is well worth your time. Open Tues thru Sun 10 to 4. Adults $4; 7 to 12 years $2; under 6 free.
