If you're not familiar with the Scottish Colorists you should take this opportunity to discover them. Fergusson was one of four friends who painted in the first half of the 20th century. They were obviously influenced by the post-impressionists. Many of Fergusson's works are striking,...More

The works of this lesser known artist are displayed in a former utility building which makes an ideal backdrop. Well worth a visit!

An interest little museum focused mainly on J D Ferguson. It's well worth a visit for the building alone which was the local waterworks. Entry is free you can make a donation if you wish.

Ferguson impressed me with his early work portraying ladies. Less impressed with later stylised work. But variety is the spice as they say. Bought a small print. Staff charming helpful and knowledgeable. Recommended.

Easy to find, on main Edinburgh road on way in to Perth, with good (payable) parking immediately opposite . Small but interesting, with paintings and background information. The building itself is worth seeing -cute, being a former water tower. Small , won't take you long,...More
