Description

Scotland's most famous explorer and missionary was born here in 1813, in a single-roomed house in Shuttle Row - today a Grade A listed tenement.

It is now part of the museum that tells the story of Livingstone's explorations in Africa and is home to a wide range of his personal belongings and travel aids.
Find out how he grew from a lowly factory boy to become an African explorer and a hero of the Victorian age.

The museum also gives a fascinating insight into the harsh conditions endured by industrial workers in the 19th century.

Port Patrick

The cottage has been aptly named as the Gulf Steam touches this corner of Scotland making the climate very temperate and if you find this hard to believe then visit Logan Botanic Gardens where plants from the South Seas flourish. The garden to Palm Tree Cottage has a palm tree reputed to be over 50 years old and viewed from the terrace the garden really does look tropical. There is an enticing view to the sea over the charming roof tops of this fishing village dating back historically some 500 years.
