Wonderful and amazing visit to this little gem of an artist's studio. Would love to go again. Unfortunately as there is not a lot of space in the museum think it would be a challenge for a disabled person.

We were tipped off by a friend to visit this little attraction and we were absolutely stunned by the works on show in the artist's own studio. What a breath-taking experience it was. Wood, stone and bronze sculptures, water colours, etchings, ink and pencil drawings all on view. Lamb did all the oak panelling on the walls and all the... More

Tucked away up a small close at the end of the High Street this hidden gem is well worth the visit. Full of the work of William Lamb one of Scotland's best but little known sculptors it provides a showcase for his work. A recently published book by Jonathon Stansfeld lays out the story of this remarkable artist in an... More

The Minesweeper, Bill the Smith, the Wisper,... More

This is a superb collection of sculpture and drawings/etchings by a gifted artist whose time of serious recognition has, I think, yet to come. I have been aware of this collection for most of my adult life and feel the need to re- visit it more often as I get older and understand more of Lamb's genius. I can guess... More

For those interested in art, the studio is a 'must-see' - it must have one of the most comprehensive collections of an artist's work in the UK. For those not so fussed by sculpture (and the excellent collection of drawings) Lamb's life story is sufficient reason to pop in.

I was fortunate to grow up spending my summers in Montrose - a nice change of pace from the USA. As an adult in his 40s, I am not travelling over as much as I'd like, but I do find time every few years to return and visit my family and enjoy our roots. It wasn't until my last visit... More

Lamb's studio has been maintained in wonderful condition by Angus District Council and it appears to have been renovated very recently to provide an excellent showcase for the work of this extremely skilled but relatively unknown painter, etcher and sculptor. The sculpture and paintings are on display and his etchings and drawings can be seen in the numerous work books... More

A wonderful gem of a collection including sketches, watercolours and sculpture. A lovely tribute to the very talented William Lamb in a studio setting. Open in the summer months and supported by the friends of William Lamb. Some exceptional pieces that make you think! Plan as a short visit...and you will probably stay for longer!
