  • I went with young children who really enjoyed the brass rubbing and playing the harp on display. It's a very small museum so you can get a quick idea of local history. There is also a wide variety of stuff in the shop.
  • Beautiful well preserved Pictish art. The museum is well laid out and well lit, so the patterns on the stones stand out.
  • Excellent Museum
  • Cute, though small.
