GRAMPIAN TRANS­PORT MU­SEUM

Al­ford, Aberdeen­shire, AB33 8AE Ad­mis­sion: £10 If you were a fan of the tele­vi­sion se­ries

For the Love of Cars, then a trip north of the bor­der will pro­vide you with the op­por­tu­nity to see one of this mu­seum’s star ex­hibits – the Rover SD1 po­lice car that show pre­sen­ters Ant An­stead and Philip Glenis­ter res­cued and re­stored. It looks even bet­ter in the me­tal than it did on screen and is a real treat for fans of clas­sic emer­gency ve­hi­cles. And there’s lots more to see, in­clud­ing col­lec­tions ded­i­cated to the Swing­ing 60s and rac­ing hero, Guy Martin. The vin­tage steam ve­hi­cles are es­pe­cially en­joy­able – don’t miss the Birkhall por­ta­ble steam en­gine that once earned its liv­ing in a sawmill on the royal Bal­moral es­tate – and plenty of the ex­hibits are hands-on, so the kids will be kept en­ter­tained, too. gtm.org.uk 01975 562292
