We are very sorry about this disappointment. Our web site was definitely displaying correct opening times so we think that some other web site must have been incorrect.

A sweet stop on the Pict Trail to seem some fascinating carvings and fanciful mosaics, try your hand at rubbings and at the Celtic harp, great gift shop for Celtic symbology. The volunteer staff we met was so helpful and passionate on the subject.

Run by enthusiastic volunteers, this little museum focuses mainly on Pict history, as I first learnt from a newly-published book: Exploring the NC500. Now understand why the Glenmorangie whisky company chose the celtic design behind its image. Upstairs are the records and pictures related to...More
