This collection of reconstructed/ preserved crofts is interesting and informative. It’s also popular despite its small size. It’s a short walk to the Kilmuir churchyard where Flora MacDonald’s memorial is. Worth a visit.
one side is the 1800s to 1he 1930's while the other side is crofting life as it was in the 16oo-1700's The crofting side was much more to my liking. the other side did not give you much info on what you were seeing.
There is a lot to read within about 6 different crofter cottages. It was quite crowded on a very rainy, blustery day. A lot of tour buses stop here. The importation is excellent, be sure to read the sign about Fisherman superstitions.
These historical crofts were very well done and very informative. The location is stunning and adds to the sense of history and days from before. The similarities between those that emigrated to Canada and those that stayed was striking.
