Biggar Museum Trust

The small town of Biggar is home to some of the best small museums in Scotland. The Biggar Museum Trust looks after six sites. Moat Park Heritage Centre which houses local geology displays, archaeological artifacts, model building displays and figures dressed in authentic period clothing. At Gladstone Court you can step back in time and walk through quaint Victorian streets and visit the fully fitted shops and businesses taking time to soak up the atmosphere of times past. Brownsbank Cottage was the home of poet Hugh Mcdiarmid. Now fully restored, it houses some of Mcdiarmid’s artifacts and books. Greenhill Covenanters’ House is a restored 17th century building which tells the story of the National Covenant, an important religious and political movement during the 1600s. Biggar Gasworks is a perfectly preserved gasworks and the only one of its kind in Scotland. It remains as it did when it closed down in 1973 when North Sea gas took over from coal produced gas.
