The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It is the MBE for volunteer groups, and the Biggar Museum volunteers are defnitely one of a kind!

Why don't you pay them a visit in the museum and ask them about their involvement? Many of them have been contributing their time and efforts to the museum for years! And if you are interested in joining the group, email info@biggarmuseumtrust.co.uk to inquire further.

Biggar Stories
Biggar and the House of Fleming
The dramatic story the House of Fleming in Biggar begins in the 14th century. It features murder and execution, loyalty and tragedy. The new narrative of the House of Fleming introduces many less well-known but highly significant figures.

Visit the museum to hear about their trials and escapades as they become inextricably caught up in the saga of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Look out for the reconstructed model of the Fleming family home in Biggar, Boghall Castle.
