Welcoming, knowledgeable staff willing to give their experience and share their knowledge but, also a great place to wander around on your own. Changing exhibits on top floor make return visits interesting.

The museum had helpful staff and is free. There is a good selection of local and general Scottish artefacts with good explanations. The fossils are particularly good. The range is from pre history to relatively modern. Military stuff up stairs. No free parking nearby.
