The plaque itself is quite interesting. To my shame I have to admit that until visiting Kirrienuir I was unaware of the connection with Bon Scott. He is also heavily represented in the adjacent museum which, although small was extremely interesting, full of nuggets of...More

Bon's plaque says it all. Sadly missed by millions and never forgotten, please if you visit Bon's plaque get on your hands and knees and give it a clean, I always do :-)
