The Museum of Abernethy was opened in May 2000 by Magnus Magnusson. In 2001 it was awarded four stars by the Scottish Tourist Board.

The building, which stands within the lands of the old Culdees monastery, dates from the eighteenth century. Originally consisting of a byre, stable and cattle rede, it was renovated during the 1990s to house the Museum. In keeping with the aim of preserving the building's heritage, some of the original features, such as the internal stone walls and an area of cobbled floor, have been left visible.

In addition to mounting exhibitions the museum also attempts to collect artefacts relating to the history of the parish, to record the memories of local inhabitants, and to build a photographic record of the village, its inhabitants and their various occupations.

Fife

The southwest of Fife was built on Coal and linoleum and other industries that are much run-down whereas the prosperous-looking rural northeast couldn't be more different. Northeast Fife consists of St Andrews and the East Neuk and this is the area to see. The East Neuk of Fife is a string of beautiful old fishing villages. Other destinations worth a visit are Falkland, Cupar and the Howe of Fife. Here, you'll find Falkland Palace, one of Scotland's most remarkable historic buildings. The Fife Coastal trail is a favourite amongst walkers.
