Not being particular familiar with JD Fergusson’s work it was a pleasant surprise to find this small yet charming gallery museum that features art and everyday objects spanning both his life and that of his wife, dancer and choreographer, Margaret Morris. The Fergusson is set...More

An interesting location, a water tower converted to an art gallery. It told the story of Fergus and Meg clearly,using their paintings and we'd have rated it more highly if we'd thought them worth the effort.

If you're not familiar with the Scottish Colorists you should take this opportunity to discover them. Fergusson was one of four friends who painted in the first half of the 20th century. They were obviously influenced by the post-impressionists. Many of Fergusson's works are striking,...More

The works of this lesser known artist are displayed in a former utility building which makes an ideal backdrop. Well worth a visit!
