Tolbooth Museum Stonehaven
Originally built as a store for Dunnottar Castle, it became the town jail and court (the 'Tolbooth') from 1600 to 1767. It was renovated and opened by the Queen Mother in 1963; and in 1975 the ground floor became a museum.
The museum has many interesting exhibits:
- some from the time when it was a jail, and for example when 3 Episcopal ministers were interred for conducting illegal sermons;
- some ilustrating the fishing and farming heritage of the town
- and many others of local bygone and historical interest.
There's also a small shop where you can buy unique souviners of your visit.
