A loving tribute to Angus built by Peter Macaskill but to be honest Peter was the real star here, £2 is a bargain just to get a chat (and if you’re lucky a song) with him!

I love quirky, folksy places where a person has a vision and makes it happen. That is what the Giant Angus MacAskill museum is all about. The owner, Peter MacAskill, built a crofters cabin, filled it with interesting artifacts and lore, commissioned a huge sculpture of Angus, and for good measure threw in a sculpture of Colonel Tom Thumb (who actually toured with Angus in a circus in the mid-1800s). But what really set this little museum apart for us was the warmth of Peter and his wife. We loved hearing them talk in their beautiful Scottish lilt, and even had the pleasure of being asked by Peter to sing a Gaelic song with him “on pain of death.“ (in jest, of course.) I also leafed through the book by their son, Danny MacAskill, who is a world champion trick bike rider. I didn’t buy it because my luggage is already bursting at the seams, but it is clear that Danny is a very talented writer and I look forward to getting the book when I return to the US.

A fun little stop in Dunvegan and if you get to meet the owner Peter then you're in for a bigger treat! A lovely man with plenty of stories to tell and a passion for the museum. Its great value for £2 and although small has a lot of information and items inside.

Ahhh what a cute little place. Couple of pounds to get in and an enthusiastic man to tell you the tales. It was a cute little addition to our exploring day

Thoroughly enjoyed our chat and visit to this quirky museum. As a family of cycle enthusiasts it was lovely to meet the father of a cycling idol. Mr Macaskill was a delight to chat with and was such an interesting gent.

A very cute museum that appears to be run as a hobby from someone's garden building. It takes maybe 5-10minutes to have a look around this small room and read the information. The entry cost is £2. There was no-one attending when I went. I rang the bell as instructed but no-one came so I left the money on the side and went in.

Before planning to go here we appreciated it was small and the visit would likely not take long, however we hadn't accounted for the character of Peter Macaskill who added enormously to the enjoyment, alongside his very friendly dog Roo who seemed to want to be my personal guide throughout. The story of Giant Macaskill is so off-the-wall and different to everything else you'll find that this place has to be ranked as a rare little gem of knowledge, history and fun. Thoroughly recommend popping in if you like the quirky and characterful side of rural Scotland.

Definitely worth popping in if you’re at Dunvegan Castle. Great story, which the owners add to, and with the added Danny MacAskill connection, more interesting.
£2 well spent, incredulous someone here thought it was ‘ripping off tourists”, for goodness sake…

What a hidden gem! The teenagers loved it & the grownups enjoyed posing for photographs. On another note, I accidentally left my rucksack behind, only realised when we arrived back in Portree. Phoned Mr MacAskill & he kindly looked after it till my husband could go back for it. It really is a hidden gem with perfect, considerate owners! Thank you 😊
