Object of the Month
Boghall Gun, Early 15th Century
This 15th century hagbut is the oldest gun in Scotland. It was ‘state of the art’ artillery in its day, made by specialist gunmakers, possibly from Germany. The gun was uncovered in 1872 by a farmer ploughing his field a short distance from one of the Boghall castle towers.
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.
