There is a Giant MacAskill statue to show you how tall he really was. This is a cute little museum for people with a very specific interest in local Lore and celebrity. Admission price is cheap - any more and I would say don't bother.How tall was Angus MacAskill in feet and inches?
Angus MacAskill. Angus Mòr MacAskill (1825 – August 8, 1863) was a Scottish -born Canadian giant.

In the town of Gut St Anne there is a Gaelic College with a history museum which has a display on him. The display has a life-size figure of him, with a handlebar mustache and a top hat. I have a photograph of me (6’ 1") standing next to the statue.Where was the giant Angus MacAskill Museum built?
Gently. Peter MacAskill, 73, a former electrical engineer, brought Angus’s legend to the town of Dunvegan on Skye in the late 1980s. That was when he built a small thatched croft, or farmhouse, beside his own, dubbed it the “Giant Angus MacAskill Museum” and hired a friend to build a replica of his ancestor.
