This place is run by local volunteers and they are very knowledgeable. This attraction is only opened for a few hours, therefore find out the opening times before going for a visit. Although there is no entry fee but a small donation is appreciated.

Lots of random items ordered into groups to give a feel of life in Stonehaven through the ages. Some areas really work well. There is something for everyone but you have to look.

It looked like a boring little museum that doesn't charge for entrance. But inside it was a treasure trove of information and history. The custodian provided as much entertainment as information. If you are in Stonehaven, GO HERE. I cannot recommend it too highly.

We paid a visit to the Tolbooth Museum yesterday afternoon, which happens to be Stonehaven's oldest building. Not a huge museum, all set out on the ground floor level, but nonetheless some very interesting and unusual exhibits. Interesting to see the little cell, and read...More
