The Giant Angus Macaskill museum is very small but is really interesting and worth a visit if only to meet the owner and curator Peter who is a self confessed eccentric. There are loads of exhibits relating to the giant as well as lots of...More

Loved it! The guy who owns it has devoted a lot of time into researching Giant Angus (one of the owners forebears), and setting up the little museum. He lives in the house just behind, and if you ring the bell in the museum he'll...More
