  • Looked interesting but it was closed on the Wednesday we visited. Apparently the Centre is closed for renovations, but the park is still open. Check their Website for the re-opening date.
  • Fun and educational. When it was opened. In association with historic scotland the museum and house are currently closed for work's to be carried out. Funding for works have recently been announced. Looking forward to the day museum and house are renovated and reopened to the public. As these are currently closed for this work to be carried out. Park and garden areas are still open to the public meanwhile
  • Couldn't believe how run down this place is now,wasnt like this when I was a kid. VERY DISSAPPOINTED
  • I was closed today. But a brilliant place to visit
  • The building is great, but the would be forest garden is disappointing needs a lot of work done to it and as they say it comes down to money
