Scottish anchorages

Museums and similar places

No major museums out here of course, but a lot of small and charming museums explaining local history, geography and wildlife. And how they have improved over the years, and made themselves more child-friendly. Motsly run by volunteers, so give generously. In alphabetical order of anchorage:
