Visited on a number of occasions and I have always been impressed with the owner/curator's enthusiasm and the eclectic mix of Ayrshire history that he has assembled. It is definitely worth a visit, lovely setting, good little cafeteria and great for a day out.

I visit here semi regularly and have always been very happy with lunch. Ploughman's is very good, soup always tasty and coffee cake delicious.
