In 2016 when we reached 48,333 visitors we wondered whether we might be able to top 50,000 the next year but we were delighted when 2017 saw a 14% increase to 55,013!  The 55,000th visitor was Gary Elder from Caol who had not been in the Museum since a school visit in 1979.

Our thanks go to kind local photographer, Iain Ferguson, who was able to record the moment and gain some useful publicity.
