Arbuthnot Museum, Peterhead

I visited the Arbuthnot Museum in Peterhead in September 2014.  Peterhead was one of the most important whaling ports in Scotland and the displays in the museum amply illustrate this heritage.  In addition to the displays I was fortunate enough to be invited to visit the collections store where I discussed Peterhead’s whaling heritage with some of the staff and saw parts of the whaling related collections not normally on display.
