Abercorn Museum

West Lothian | Abercorn | Sculptured stones |

[Abercorn Museum]

Well, what can we say... Pokémon GO takes you to the most unexpected places. We might have been hoping to come across a Pikachu rather than Pictish cross shafts, but this tiny collection of ancient stones (including a Viking hogback similar to those in Govan) was an interesting diversion nonetheless. 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.
