Fergusson Gallery celebrates the life and work of the great pioneers of modern art and dance, John Duncan Fergusson and Margaret Morris. J D Fergusson is now best known as one of the celebrated Scottish Colourist painters, while Margaret Morris is recognised for her pioneering work in modern dance.

This gallery is devoted to the works of John D Fergusson and his partner Margaret Morris.

A small gallery focusing on the paintings of Fergusson. The gallery is in a former rotunda. Does not take long to view the exhibits.

A beautiful presented exhibition of Ferguson's work and his talented partner Margaret Morris. The two pleasant ladies who greet you on entering the interesting building, are both due a mention for their pleasantness.

Housed in a former water tower, this is an interesting gallery featuring the work of J D Fergusson. The paintings and the story they tell are fascinating and the way the gallery is et up makes the atmposphere quite intimate.

Went to look around as it was recommended to us having not heard of it before. Great little gallery with an interesting collection of art works. Well worth a look around and it has free entry.

We were walking along the banks of the river when we came across the Museum. I was pleasantly surprised with the contents of the museuam. I have never seen so many of J D Fergussons paintings in the one place. Well worth a visit. However Fergusson will not be for everyone's taste.
