The exhibition building is your first port of call, housing the rural life collections of the NMS, including a portrait gallery, agricultural model

The Georgian farmhouse is the National Trust’s part of the development and has been restored to its original working condition. The farm itself will be worked for the first time in many years using traditional methods of farming and ploughing, haymaking and harvesting as well as the rearing of livestock. Kids will find it very difficult to be bored here, but just in case, there is also a learning centre where they can find out more about the good old days when fields were worked by hand and horse, as well as going out on walks and field trips for some hands-on experience.

‘Scotland now has a European class development for rural heritage,’ said Tom Devine, trustee of the NMS. ‘It will show modern Scots people the way that rural life and experience has shaped our lives today.’ (Jane Hamilton)
