We stopped by here on a very rainy day, not feeling that hiking would be much fun. This is just a quick stop. You pay a small amount (I can't quite remember how much) and then you can go into a traditional stone black house and imagine how people lived. (Pretty bleak, if you ask me!) There are tools and...

Spur of the minute visit, only £1.50 admission, and full of artefacts used by crofters in times gone by. We had great weather which makes it all the more pleasant. Well worh a visit if your passing by!

I really wish that this place was open when I went but as it was a Sunday all we managed to get was some cracking photographs of these amazing black houses and the super view. I will be going back when it is open. Really super place, Just down from Kilmuir cemetery. Would recommend

This little museum village is packed with history about the Islanders in days gone by! Well worth a visit!

Its a croft with things that people used decades ago around it. We liked it a lot. It is not a sophisticated museum, but its fun.

A two room crofters house set up how it would be in its day. You can feel the history. £1.50 for adults and free for kids. Even has a honesty box when not manned. Worth a look around.

I visited this little quirky museum after having seen the Museum of Island Life and I have to say that I preferred this one. You don't get to see as many buildings or as many artifacts, or read as many informative postings. What you do get, however, is perhaps a bit truer feel for what it might have been like... More

Very interesting to see inside a crofthouse, and imagine the family's lifestyle. Lots of artefacts and memorabilia to see. You can also see the smiddy and byre with ancient tools and equipment. Very enjoyable!

We popped in here after lunch at the Three Chimneys (it's very close). This is just a wee museum, but so atmospheric. The smell of peat and earth when you enter took me right back to the village where my grandmother lived when I was a child. The mix of objects, such as letters from the clan chief Flora MacLeod...
