  • Small but great museum about religions and spirituality. It's particularly well presented, with many objects/clothes/texts/pieces of art used to describe or pinpoint some aspects of the spiritual life of various groups of humans around the planet. The museum is free, very close to the cathedral, and also hosts a typically Scottish Zen garden (imagine a zen garden with weeds gently sprouting from the stones :-) and a nice café.
  • I have an interest in Japanese gardens and in particular Zen gardens. While the basic form of the garden is there. The whole purpose of Zen is the dutiful daily attention to the smallest of details in maintaining the original designers ideas. This Zen garden is disgrace to the thought of mindfulness care and attention. There are weeds everywhere and the grass is weed ridden. There was rubbish and debris lying about. This was a major disappointment for me having travelled through from Perth. I could also see many Asian visitors who must also have also thought OMG 😱
