What people are saying:

In the deserted highlands, a museum suddenly appeared. Do you dare to enter? Said to be a museum, in fact, it is a row of small houses made of stone. It looks very cute against the blue sky, white clouds and green grass. Don’t underestimate this museum. It has been in business since 1965. It shows a variety of aboriginal lives on Sky Island. This museum also sells postcards, which can be mailed in the mailbox on the road. There will be a different postmark. .

    Very informative museum on island life

    Very informative museum on island life. It will be for a fairly wide range of interests. Time spent at the premises can be 1 to 3 hours aproximately.

    Beautiful buildings

    Sadly the museum was not open and as a consequence all we could see were the historic and amazing black houses. When we return to Skye we will attempt to come when the museum is open for the season

    Interesting history, even into the present day

    Designer Alexander McQueen is buried here as is Flora MacDonald who helped to rescue Bonnie Prince Charlie
