Travel back in time and get a vivid insight into rural Scottish life 200 years ago! Housing one of Scotland’s finest folk collections, this museum shows exactly how the country’s rural workforce used to live. Six charming 18th-century cottages comprise the domestic section, with the agricultural collection in the farm steading opposite. You can experience a Victorian schoolroom, marvel at the fantastic array of outlandish farming implements and spend time in a typical room from a ‘but and ben’ cottage.

Authentic inside and out, the museum’s huge collection encapsulates a way of life that is now fading from living memory, when horses provided the power, spinning and weaving were universal skills and communities were of necessity close-knit and self supporting.
