Found the museum by chance. Very interesting and informative tour given by George and his colleague of the many different aspects of policing in the area over the years. Plenty exhibits to see and read about. Well worth a visit.

A small museum staffed by volunteers. An ex policeman talked us through the displays adding his memories. Very informative. Free entry but definitely worth a donation. Limited opening hours so check before going.

Came across this wonderful little museum by accident on a visit to Kirriemuir. A great find, with well laid out exhibits and clear displays. But the highlight was the guided tour by one of the volunteers which brought everything to life. Definitely worth seeking out.More
