Museums

Duchess Anne Cottages, Kinneil Estate, Bo'ness, Stirlingshire, EH51

    From Roman soldiers to inventors, Kinneil Museum is the starting point for an exploration into the colourful history of the Kinneil Estate.

    Kinneil Museum is located in the 17th century stable block of Kinneil House and acts as an interpretative centre for Kinneil Estate.

    The exhibition 2,000 Years of History tells the story of the park from Roman times to the present day.

    Antoninus Pius, St Serf, Mary, Queen of Scots and James Watt are among the many historical characters associated with the estate.

    A short walk from the museum takes visitors to the Antonine Wall, awarded World Heritage Site status in July 2008, and Roman fortlet, a medieval Church and the site of the medieval village, Kinneil House, and James Watt's cottage. All of this sits in Kinneil Estate, a vibrant are of woodland, ponds, and wildlife ideal for walks.
