Find Your Fortune

Gold can be found in many areas of Scotland and particularly in the Lowther Hills around Wanlockhead and Leadhills where gold panning has been popular for centuries.

Visitors get the chance to pan for gold in tanks outside the Lead Mining Museum in Wanlockhead Village.  Each sessions lasts approximately 20 minutes and if you follow the gold panners instructions you will definitely find a few flakes of REAL gold to take home with you, along with a certificate to confirm that you found real gold in Scotland's Highest Village.
