Automobile Association Box 472 must surely be the tiniest museum in Scotland. For those of us who have frequented the road to the hills, the old wooden AA box was a familiar sight on the journey on the way to Ballater and Braemar.
A few years ago some keen local people from Ballater feared that this interesting relic of our past should be rescued from its state of dilapidation. Apparently it had been graded listed Grade II but then left to deteriorate.
You can see how they set about the work of repairing and refurbishing the Box 472 at http://aabox472.webs.com/ control and click the link
Inside the museum there is the AA phone, photographs, AA memorabilia, a visitor’s book along with tourist maps and information brochures for the Cairngorms National Park.
Now people from all across the world visit this great wee museum.
Well done to the Ballater 5.
