Photo taking is restricted which is a shame because it is very useful to have photos as well as a diary of places you visit. I find that if I visit a lot of places in one long trip I need photos to remind me of the unusual points. This one had quite an extensive display in a few buildings.... More

Folk museum is just feet away from glamis castle. From the entrance at the main driveway it is just round the corner and from the other exit of glamis you walk by it so there is no reason not to take a look. Basically its a museum about life in bygone days. The museum is 6 white cottages all joined... More

Travelling back from holiday we noticed signs to this small Scottish Trust property. The property is split in to two. One part is a series of cottages showing an insight in rural home life, the other part, which is across a small road, displays agricultural machinery showing the working life of the people. The whole collection is the result of... More

Not to miss when you leave the Glamis castle through the private car exit. Small but very real presented with plenty equipment, tools, furniture’s and mannequins depicting past habits. With our NTS card we had free entrance, and detected quite some of the items from grandmother’s time. Interesting were the very old curling stones.

We have been passing Glamis for more years than I care to remember and had no idea this was there. A great trip back to the past well worth a visit. Lovely scenic location.

This a great wee museum which has a lot to see. I went with my elderly parents and aunt who remembered a few of the items on display. Loved looking at all the old household items and farm machinery. Tells a great story of how country life used to be.

Visited here on way to Glamis Castle. It was very quiet and we were first visitors of the day. Volunteer staff made us very welcome which is what we found at all the NTS sites that we visited.

The museum was interesting enough, but nothing too exciting. The agricultural bit across the road was also worth a quick look. Parking is tight.

The museum is situated in the olde worlde village of Glamis not far from the Castle where Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother was born and is actually a little treasure trove for people interested in how we used to live. Its an incredible place and I throughly enjoyed wandering around, looking at the displays and listening to the staff. Rooms... More

Just a few yards from Glamis Castle, the museum is is a group of cottages where the inner walls have been removed so that you can walk from one end to the other. Fascinating glimpse of a children's school room with small desks. There was a room to show how they washed their clothes using soap & starch. Outside in... More
