While we were tracing family history (go on a Wednesday to do this), the children were kept busy and informed trying to answer all the questions on the well thought out quiz. being 10 and 11 they were able to do this on their own. We got there a little late and you really need at least an hour. It... More

The enthuiastic staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and hepful. We took 2 1/2 Hrs and even then we skimmed areas that we weren't overly interested... More

Worth a visit, quite interesting rooms and exhibits and a nice tea room but quite small and one could be round it in about 30 minutes if not enjoying the tea room.

This wasn't expensive (I think £3.50 ish plus £1.50 for the guide book if you want it - it IS worth buying it) but it's well worth a visit. It detailed Arran's history in it with many photos and artifacts for all to see, including the local geology, a traditional cottage, a smithy and lovely gardens to wander round. They... More

There is a huge wealth of information about agricultural life in general as well as more detailed information about the people and history of... More

Very interesting displays. You do start to feel old when you recognise some of the exhibits from your childhood. We had to smile when a mum was explaining to her (grown-up) daughter that the big black bacolite thing was a telephone !!! Very friendly staff - do visit, it's well worth it.

Arrived at 11 to find out that the kitchen didn't open until 12. Well worth the wait. Great choice and quality of food. Would just like an earlier chance to eat breakfast.
