Creetown Heritage Museum

  Just before Newton Stewart is the pretty village of Creetown, and in what was in a past life a garage is a great little museum, please see website for opening times / Creetown was a 'ferry' town originally sailing pilgrims across the estuary, later the quarrying of granite provided employment. Within the museum are displays of  an old shop, a parlour, fishing, and wartime memorabilia. Oh and a Wickerman, yes the film was partially filmed in the hotel, and a bakers nearby. Well worth a visit to enjoy Creetown's heritage.
