Housing one of Scotland's finest folk collections, this museum presents a vivid insight into how the rural workforce used to live. Six charming 18th century cottages contain the domestic section, and the agricultural collection is in the farm steading opposite, illustrating changes in the Angus countryside over the last 200 years. One of the most dramatic artifacts is the restored 19th century black horse drawn 'Glenisia' hearse.
