Scotland's Best B&Bs
With such a rich and diverse history across Scotland, visitors are spoiled for choice in the variety of museums available.
From cities to towns and villages you can be sure to find small and not so small treasure houses telling the story of the area from ancient times to the present day. Large cities tend to have artefacts from around the world showing how Scots men and women have always had an appetite for travel to places far and near. In town museums you will find objects of particular importance to the town and stories of the men and women who were wise enough to preserve the local heritage. Villages have intimate collections, often donated by local people, proud of the lives their ancestors lived. You might find museums representing a particular craft such as weaving, printing, farming, industrial museums, transport museums, mining museums, maritime museums - or even museums devoted to one person of note. Castles, cottages, redundant farm buildings and factories and former schools have all been given a new lease of life by housing the evidence of Scotland's past. There has been quite a revolution in the lay out of museums, making a visit much more interesting and attractive to children who often are kept amused through a quiz arranged by the curator or hands on exhibits.
