Spend a day - experience centuries! This award winning museum has recreated a thriving township from the 1700s with heather thatched roofs and open peat fires, a working croft with cattle, sheep,ducks and hens and an old tin school from the 1930s where the teacher rules are amongst the many buildings that you can discover on site. Costumed interpreters bring history to life.
