Worth visiting for Mr Macaskill alone. He's witty, warm and full of anecdotes. The museum is unique and, although small, is original and unusual and tells the story of Scotland's, indeed the United Kingdom's, tallest man, who by all accounts, was a great showman as...More

A hidden gem near the Dunvegan Castle. Charming mister Macaskill told us all about the history of a famous Scott. The museum is as charming as its owner and the stories are full of humour and also available in other languages than English. Please take...More

If you are at Dunvegan, just stop by and spend 15min to this “do it yourself “ museum. The founder, a relative of the Giant in question, will give you the full explanation. Ask also about his son Danny. You will be surprised!

The Angus Macaskill Museum is a tiny, old-fashioned museum that is the passion project of one man who has dedicated a portion of his life to an interesting family legacy of his. You can probably get through the museum in 10-20 minutes, but it's definitely...More

This is a small, old-fashioned museum, which is a labour of love, and a stage for the engaging storytelling of its curator and creator. Very good value, and probably the best thing available in Dunvegan on a rainy day, which is quite often. Sitting on...More
