Scotlands Veiws

Armed Forces Museum
A bit of a disappointment. The site is not very informative and is not particularly in depth. However if you wish a brief history then this is the place to go.

Culzean Castle
Culzean Castle whilst being a castle is also a very good museum housing some excellent exhibits, for example a very good Eisenhower exhibition dating from W.W. II Details are a little brief though.

Discovery Point
This is the site of Discovery Point in Dundee where the sailing ship is berthed. This ship took Scott to the Antarctic. Well laid out but the graphics can be a little annoying.

Glendale Museum
Glendale Toy Museum Award winning visitor attraction on the Isle of Skye now reopened after a massive fire in 2002

Enjoy the View

Hunterian Museum
The Hunterian, beside Glasgow University, is the oldest public museum in Scotland. The Web site is excellent with sections on a range of exhibits including the Romans in Scotland, dinosaurs and fossils.

John Paul Jones Museum
This is the site commemorating the birthplace of J.P. Jones, founder of the American Navy. Good biographical details without being too “academic”. The ships bell sound is a nice touch.

National Museum of Scotland
This is an extensive, illustrated description of the various National Museums including The Royal Museum and The Museum of Scotland which opened on St Andrew’s Day, 30 November 1998, beside the current Royal Museum.

National Trust for Scotland
This is the official site but to be honest it is rather disappointing in terms of graphics. It is however highly informative about the subject areas it does cover.

Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre 
SECC is a large scale conference and event centre. It also provides a fully computerised Box Office which currently handles more than a quarter of a million tickets each year for events at the SECC and – through SECC Xtra – for events at other venues throughout Scotland.

Sensation
Sensation Dundee is the only UK science centre based on the five senses. It attempts to bring science to life in dozens of imaginative ways.

Tayside- A Maritime History
This is a wonderful site even if you are not particularly interested in seafaring. It is well laid out and has several good search facilities such as famous heroes, maps and tours. Well worth a look
