Attraction Information

Glenesk Retreat and Folk Museum is a centre for the community of Glenesk, the east-most of the inspiring glens of Angus and is home to a folk museum, gift shop and art gallery, and licensed restaurant and tearoom.

The purpose-built Folk Museum is dedicated to the heritage, history and culture of Glenesk and focuses on the life of the rural community. An array of domestic and agricultural objects, together with photographs and other artefacts, tells fascinating intertwined stories of lives lived on the land over centuries.

Reconstructed rooms recreate life in the glen in Victorian times along with period dressing up, toys and activities.

Also take a look at the Green Shed stables displaying agricultural implements from as early as the 18th century, together with magnificent horses' harnesses in the cobbled stalls.
