Neil McDonald who has been an avid AC/DC collector since the 1970’s is temporarily donating part of his collection, much which has never been seen by the public before, for this once in a lifetime display.
Gateway to the Glens Museum, The Town House, 32 High Street, Kirriemuir, is open from 10am until 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Kirriemuir is Bon Scott’s birthplace, and the exhibition is coinciding with the “BON FEST 2011” event that just took place this weekend in celebration of Bon’s birthday on July 9th.
