As a Scot with a working knowledge of the country’s movers, shakers, artists and writers over the centuries I found the revamped museum absolutely riveting and my Canadian companion was also fascinated by the detailed Jacobite gallery and the portraits of big hitters like Mary Queen of Scots, Bonny Prince Charlie, Walter Scott and Rabbie Burns. It was the first time I’d seen the Jacobite glassware and it was a highlight of the visit. The busts of still-living politicians and writers briefly disconcerted me though: I’d been out of the country for just two months! The café sold the mandatory scones and cakes.
