On our way back to the newcastle ferry, after a trip through Scotland we had some time left before ferry departure.Wishing to spend those hours in a pleasant way i asked my GPS what was of interest in the proximity of our postion and the burnhall motor museum came up. It was only 3 miles back on the A69 so we decided to give it a visit. When we arrived there i was in doubt if it was the right place, after all my GPS has failed me on more than one occasion. But the guy outside of what looked like a garage confirmed we where in the right place. After paying 2x3 pound admission we where led through somebody's living room (!) in to the hangar wich doubled as a "museum" Anyway the guy leading us round was very kind and we had a nice chat about British (classic) cars of wich i've owned several.The crown piece of the collection was a rare 1949 invicta but there where other interesting and very well restored cars on display to. I wouldn't recommend going to the museum if you have to make a long journey to get there, but if you happen to be in the neighborhood and you're interested in British classic cars then why not?
On the contrary of common belief, we did have lovely wheather and good food in Scotland ( loch Leven in the morning)
