The Scottish Fisheries Museum
The Scottish Fisheries Museum is a multi-award winning national museum suitable for families which tells the story of Scottish fishing from the earliest times to the present –and beyond!
A guided tour takes approximately 90 minutes and themed tours can be arranged to link in with specific projects or interests. You will see historic fishing gear and fishing boats, including the Reaper, the Research and the Lively Hope, which are an official part of the National Historic Fleet!
Medieval atmosphere meets Victorian style at Kellie Castle. The oldest parts date back to the 14th century, but the whole interior was overhauled in the late 19th century by famous artistic family the Lorimers.
Crow-stepped gables and fairytale stone towers form the outer frame, while indoors elaborate plaster ceilings and painted panelling lie alongside fine furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer, who spent much of his childhood at Kellie Castle. Outside, take a wander through the Arts &Crafts garden with its magnificent herbaceous borders, filled with the heavy scent of old roses, along with fruit and vegetables which are all grown organically.
