[Abercorn Museum]

This tiny collection of ancient stones - including Pictish cross shafts and a Viking hogback similar to those in Govan - is far from a major attraction, but makes an interesting diversion within easy reach of much of the Central Belt. The museum building (perhaps "shed" is a more accurate term) is just within the grounds of Abercorn Church. This has a particularly lovely arch with finely carved gargoyles above the main door, but the interior was locked on our visit.
