This is an absolute gem of a place - a cluster of white washed buildings with a collection of old farm machinery outside, easily spotted from the road. The museum is a pleasant 20 minute walk from Brodick village or five mins by car. Here you will learn all about the history of arran and its people, also the geology... More

We always visit the museum when we holiday on Arran and always discover something that we missed before. Staff are extremely friendly and the cafe serves excellent snacks. On a good day the flowers and gardens are are especially attractive with the burn running along at the foot of the lawn. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in the... More
