Places to See

One of the town’s main attractions is a world famous Victorian puppet theatre. Biggar also has more museums per head than any other town in Scotland. They include the Moat Park Heritage Centre, Gladstone Court Museum, Greenhill Covenanters Museum, and the Biggar Gasworks Museum, the only preserved gas works in Scotland. The town hosts an annual arts festival, the Biggar Little Festival, every October. Another yearly event is the Biggar Bonfire, an ancient custom that takes place on Hogmanay and dates back to pagan times. It involves a torchlight parade accompanied by pipers and drummers before a bonfire is lit by the town's oldest resident.
