“stepped back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Visited in 2011 and enjoyed immensely. Lots of things to see and do and it gives you a good feel of how the islanders lived. There was also a working loom and support on hand for the less understanding. Cafe on site was also excellent. Give it a try.

“Fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Great insight into past lives. And great views. I think you can actually rent some of them too. Good parking and reasonable access down a few steps.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Visited the village in August; it was closed due to no electricity in the local area. I would have though that would have added to the authenticity!

“Wonderullly evocative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Great wee museum and very evocative to a byegone age. Don't forget the wee cottage across the road- just as interesting. Was in the process of being re-thatched whilst we were there which was fascinating.
