Only £1.50 to look at a piece of history. There is one croft house to view but it gives a real insight into how life must have been. The croft house only has two rooms, a combined living/kitchen area and the bedroom. It has a bare earth floor and the peat fire burns in the middle of the main room.... More

The charming Museum is self-explaining, showing the home and the work of a Crofter living here before of the highland clearances. You are free to walk through on your own and smell the smoke of the peat fire burning strill on the hearth in the middle of the one-room house. This kind of heating gives the name to the Black.House... More
