Gladstone Court Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Gladstone Court was originally a private enterprise but was officially opened in 1968 by poet Hugh MacDiarmid, a resident of Biggar. Some of MacDiarmid's books are on the shelves in the library over the telephone exchange.
Gladstone Court has moved to a new site on Biggar High Street, to become part of a much larger Museum of Biggar and Upper Clydesdale, which opened in summer 2015. The new museum includes reconstructed shops and businesses from Biggar and the surrounding area, as well as an archive of historical documents.
