The Grampian Transport Museum
A museum of land transport with a collection of historic vehicles which includes cars, commercial vehicles, caravans, bicycles and motorcycles.
Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire, AB33 8AE.
1981 – present. The current building was opened in 1983.
Although the Museum collection covers a wide period and extends to the present day, Scottish manufacturers are well-represented in the exhibition, with some excellent display boards charting the industry’s history.
Exhibits include cars manufactured by Albion, Argyll, and Arrol-Aster, together with three Hillman Imps, built at Linwood near Glasgow. Also of interest is the rare Argyll GT, originally launched in October 1983, and a beautifully restored three-wheel Stanhope Bramham, built in Leeds in 1923.
