  • Loved this place as am very interested in Crystals and the like some fantastic specimens in some of the cabinets with special lighting. 
  • Since it rained here but a visit. Not great but still nice to see. Nice for when it rains and you do not want to stay on the campsite.

  • This award-winning Museum is a must and a great rain program for children as one of the best museums in Scotland for mineral lovers. The large mineral Druze were a highlight for us.
