Groam House in Rosemarkie Scotland is a beautiful little museum, well worth stopping for if you enjoy Pictish or Celtic artwork. The two-story building contains several carved stones downstairs and a rotating exhibition upstairs. We were lucky to visit in May '17, when the exhibition featured George Bain's etchings done during his wartime years. While we knew Mr. Bain from his book, Celtic Art and Methods of Construction, his other works were unknown to us. His etchings of people and landscapes were wonderful. An added plus are the charming volunteers, who are happy to share their knowledge of Bain and Pictish art.
If you are interested in viewing more Pictish stones, make sure to ask the volunteers for a tour flier. There are several stones within easy driving distance of the museum, a trip that combines both art and incredible scenery.
