We hope to see lots of youout there.

Two gems havebeen pepped up - we've updated visitor information at theAngus Folk Museum, using sound in an innovative way tobring this unique treasure trove to life. At Preston Mill, thereare enhanced facilities and a new presentation of thefascinating story of the mill. It could be time for a visit. At Threave you can enjoy the new sculpture garden and inWester Ross we'll be close to completing vital repairs to thebridge over Corrieshalloch Gorgeby the time you read this.The bridge, which is almost 140 years old, is a terrific feat ofengineering - so it's quite a job.
