We were engaged in a long drive all round the Northern part of Skye when we happened upon the Colbost Croft Museum. Just off the road side, looking out to sea were low stone buildings covered in thatch. It gave an interesting insight into life...More

We have always seen Croft cottages on different Scottish island on tv, but we had never seen one. It really gives a true feeling of living in those days, with original genuine antiquities from the era. Quite a nice shop as well. Well worth a...More

While randomly traveling along the road to Uig, we happened upon this amazing little historic museum. If you are interested highland life, as well as the Jacobite risings, this place is for you! Dugs welcome too.

Not my usual kind of tourist attraction but this was an interesting look back at life on the Isle in the bygone days. Each croft house is dedicated to a different area of life, weaving, fishing, a recreated home etc.

Not very big but quite absorbing, well presented interiors of the tiny croft houses. All the small croft houses are worth time spent exploring the way we all used tried to keep warm and dry.
