“Fabulous glimpse into Angus folk life of days gone by.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2010

The folk museum is a must see - I know all the tourists bypass the 2 minutes into the village, but you are missing a lot! The village itself is a must visit.

The folk museum is in two parts. The first, is a series of interconnected cottages from the days of stone and thatched roofs. The rooms are set up as slices of life from centuries ago, with mementos and memories all on display. An Angus school room, a cottage laundry, tools and pastimes of years ago. The cottages are former crofters on the Earl of Strathmore (laird of Glamis Castle) from the 1800s.

Across the country lane is the agricultural museum. How many implements can your grand-dad identify!

The volunteers here are absolutely enchanting and chatty about the life they knew through their parents and grandparents. Don't miss this one.
