    We visited the Kilmartin Museum to get some background into the area before we visited the pre-historic remains. I was impressed with the museum, although it wasn't that big it was packed with interes...  more »

    An interesting indoor museum of this important site. However, it is a pity we did not have time to wander the site to really see it. You definitely need a day here.  more »

    On a rainy day this is an ideal location. The cost of admission is very reasonable - £13 for a family ticket and with Gift Aid you can have unlimited admission for a year. There's so much is what seem...  more »

  • The church is pretty with stunning Celtic artifacts to be found in and around the grave yard. The museum cafe is OK, but not dog friendly. My personal favourites, the Temple Wood stone circle and near by Nether Large standing stones are amazing! Scotland's Dalriada stone henge in scenic surrounds??? 3000 BC is way too difficult for me to comprehend.
  • The museum has some fascinating information on the surrounding area and a lovely cafe with beautiful views.
  • This is an outstanding museum. Although the building may be small, the amount of information and artifacts attractively and informatively displayed is impressive, and the incredible history in the surrounding landscape is stunning. This is an excellent family museum, perfect for kids as young as 6 or 7, and for all ages above. All of our party (ages 10, 16, 19, 44 and 45) very much enjoyed the hands-on displays that added to the full context of the exhibits. The cafe is really top-notch and the gift shop is lovely. I'd put this on par with the National Museum of Scotland, just highly focused and most of the things to see are in the landscape outside, which again makes it appealing for families! My one wish is that there was a guidebook to buy similar to those at Urquhart Castle, to consult as we walked the landscape and carry home with us after.
  • Well worth a visit if you are in the area. The local vicinity is steeped in history.
  • very informative with things they had on display look forward to going back when next up this way
