Attraction in East Kilbride
Go wild in the country at Scotland's fantastic working farm and museum. Here you can discover how country people lived and worked in Scotland in the past, and how that has shaped the countryside of today. Part of the National Museums of Scotland (NMS) this impressive new Museum is the result of a unique partnership between NMS and The National Trust for Scotland.
An award-winning Exhibition Building includes galleries on the environment, rural technologies and people, as well as an education centre, film house, picture gallery, seminar room and a lovely café and gift-shop. A working farm demonstrates traditional methods, from horse power to tractor power, allowing visitors to follow the pattern of seasonal work through ploughing, seed time, haymaking and harvest. There is also a dairy herd reared using traditional methods. Enjoy fascinating temporary exhibitions and a year-round programme of special events, visit our website for more information.
