St Vigeans Stones & Museum in Arbroath

There was free entry to St Vigeans Museum of Carved Stones in Arbroath during the  Doors Open Days weekend in Angus, in eastern Scotland.

Although I’ve visited St Arbroath many times, but I’d never been to St Vigeans before. The first thing that you seen when your drive into the village is the red church on the mound. There is free on street parking and a large car park at the end of the road by the church hall.

As I arrived during a dry spell on a showery day, I thought that I should have a walk up to church, where there were some interesting gravestones.

The museum is housed a terraced cottage in the main street.

I didn’t have sufficient interest or time, as I was heading to an art workshop at Hospitalfield, to read all the information about the carved stones, but I was impressed by the quality of the workmanship.

The St Vigeans Carved Stones Museum is usually only open by appointment. The next open day is Saturday 29 September 2018.
