The Isle of Arran Heritage Museum first opened its doors in 1979. It’s home to some fascinating exhibits about the social history, archaeology and geology of the ancient Isle of Arran. The main building itself was originally a small school, and many other buildings on-site are also repurposed properties! There’s a croft, a smiddy, a farmhouse, cottage, bothy, milk house, laundry, stable, coach house and harness room!
There’s something for everyone here – whether you’re an adult with an interest in heritage sites, or children pursuing a new love of history through some fun interactive exhibits!
After experiencing the museum, feel free to visit Café Rosaburn for some delicious snacks and treats. Bring a picnic to the riverside gardens and let the kids run free in the playhut, or take a seat on the big red tractor!
