  • After lunch we visited the museum. It's very small and not really bother. You can do much better in nature (corrals) between the cairns steps and to the small church with graveyard.

  • 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.
  • Fascinating walk around the cairns and museum. The smell of coffee and cake makes the cafe very tempting.
  • Historical place, nearby 5.500 years old tombs. Fantastic.
  • Good, informative museum, excellent site for walking around the cairns and standing stones. It was good to see that the cafe is back on track after a couple of visits last year.
  • 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.
