What a lot to see about life in Arran at this quaint attraction. Well worth a visit. In fact, I would say it's a ' must see ' venue for anyone interested in Arran. Staff, all volunteers, were friendly and helpful.

We always visit the Museum at least once every time we visit Arran. There is always something new to see.I especially enjoy the Schoolroom and enjoy reading the histories written by the Island's pupils.
