The Angus Folk Museum is still on the most recent tourist map we have and we were really disappointed to find it closed because of the building's condition. This is a National Trust for Scotland property and I am surprised that the organisation has not identified funding to make the building safe so it can be re-opened. Some locals we... More

This closure is a great pity as it is in TWO parts - the row of stone roofed cottages and the agricultural museum opposite. The cottage roofs needs costly repair work however the other part is separate and could be open to the public if the NTS so desired. That part houses the agricultural historical artefacts - including the horse... More

Sorry this is now closed indefinitely awaiting funding for major repairs to the buildings. I've been told this could take more than five years before anything can be done

The museum has been closed for a couple of years or longer due to the roof needing repairs which is sad as it was very popular as it is at the gates of glamis castle there is no sign of it opening in the near future

This National Trust for Scotland property is closed and It would appear all the contents moved as the roof requires attention but the NTS seems not to have much interest in wee properties such as this and Barries Birthplace in Kirriemuir !

This museum isn't open at all through the holiday period. There is nothing telling us of this on the National trust website or in the book. Very disappointed in the lack of communication from the National trust of Scotland as this was not the first place we tried to visit that was actually closed.

Photo taking is restricted which is a shame because it is very useful to have photos as well as a diary of places you visit. I find that if I visit a lot of places in one long trip I need photos to remind me of the unusual points. This one had quite an extensive display in a few buildings.... More

Folk museum is just feet away from glamis castle. From the entrance at the main driveway it is just round the corner and from the other exit of glamis you walk by it so there is no reason not to take a look. Basically its a museum about life in bygone days. The museum is 6 white cottages all joined... More

Travelling back from holiday we noticed signs to this small Scottish Trust property. The property is split in to two. One part is a series of cottages showing an insight in rural home life, the other part, which is across a small road, displays agricultural machinery showing the working life of the people. The whole collection is the result of... More

Not to miss when you leave the Glamis castle through the private car exit. Small but very real presented with plenty equipment, tools, furniture’s and mannequins depicting past habits. With our NTS card we had free entrance, and detected quite some of the items from grandmother’s time. Interesting were the very old curling stones.
