  • The Skye Museum of Island Life is an open-air museum in Kilmuir in the north-east corner of the Isle of Skye.

    First opened in 1965, the museum preserves a small settlement of thatched cottages which depict life as it was on the island at the end of the 19th century.

    Visitors can view various different types of rooms in the croft cottages including a typical kitchen, bedroom and barn as well as the Weaver’s Cottage and the Ceilidh House.

    The museum is open from Easter to October and has a small admission fee.

    Just behind the museum is Kilmuir Cemetery where Flora MacDonald’s Grave can be found
