In the north of Skye at Kilmuir is the Museum of Island Life. It is a small museum based in a small township of thatched cottages, each depicting, as closely as possible, the conditions on the island at the end of the nineteenth century. The museum is worth visiting to see how life used to be on Skye, especially as entry to the museum is £3 for adults and 50p for school aged children (as at July 2019).
The largest cottage contains the croft kitchen and bedroom.
One of the other cottages is set up as a weaver’s cottage.
In the ceilidh house there is an exhibition about Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald. It also contains old photos and documents of Skye.
