Broughty Castle Museum Castle Approach Broughty Ferry Dundee

James Guthrie Orchar was one of Dundee's most prominent businessmen, and former provost of Broughty Ferry. A successful inventor, engineer and entrepreneur, today he is remembered primarily as a patron of the arts. His art collection – which contains over 400 paintings, drawings and prints – survives intact and is regarded as one of the most important Victorian collections of Scottish art in the country. This display, which is a new gallery for Broughty Castle, features 24 paintings from the Orchar Collection – a selection of portraits, landscapes and still lifes by artists of the Robert Scott Lauder Group, including William McTaggart, Hugh Cameron, George Paul Chalmers, John MacWhirter, John Pettie and William Quiller Orchardson. It also includes twentieth century paintings by Alec Grieve, Philip de Laszlo and James McIntosh Patrick. Admission free. Opening times: April – September Monday to Saturday 10am – 4pm, Sun 12.30 – 4pm; October – March Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 4 pm, Sunday 12.30 – 4 pm. For further information contact (01382) 436916.
