It's like stepping back into times gone by on Skye. The exhibits are wonderfully presented and there is so much to see with plenty of clear information. Even if the weather is inclement, it's nice and snug inside the many buildings and a great way to spend time.

Just letting you know this museum is no longer here. It got heavily damaging and ruined.

I drove out to see it in May 2022 and talked to a neighbor who told me about it.

We came across this place by chance. Even though it was closed and we couldn't go in, it was fantastic just to see and photograph these recreated ancient dwelling houses and to get a glimpse of how life in my country used to be. On a rainy misty day, the location was so atmospheric. Accidental discovery that was a real highlight of our visits to Skye - and it cost us nothing!

We didn't even know about this place. We were going for a drive on the beautiful Isle of Skye and stopped here. We loved it! I would highly recommend stopping here to learn about the area and its history. This is a fun place that the entire family can enjoy. There are several buildings that show you what it was like to live on a small croft (farm). There is a graveyard just up the road (walking distance) that I would also suggest visiting. Many of the tours/buses don't take this road but if you have an opportunity to visit this museum, you will be glad you did.

This museum contains original buildings and artifacts as well as replicas to complement and give a more complete picture of what a crofting village was like. A short walk up the hill is a cemetery worth visiting as well. Another plus - there is parking and restrooms near by.

We made a special trip to this museum having emailed a couple of weeks earlier to check they would still be open (they confirmed they would). When we arrived all was locked up, despite the times on the sign and website saying they should be open. I emailed again saying how disappointed we were, particularly having specifically checked in advance, and have not had the courtesy of a response. If I could give it 0 out of 5 I would.

We were engaged in a long drive all round the Northern part of Skye when we happened upon the Colbost Croft Museum.
Just off the road side, looking out to sea were low stone buildings covered in thatch.
It gave an interesting insight into life as a crofter in the 19th and 20th centuries. Hard life to be sure. Each Croft featured a different aspect of a crofter’s life. Loads of information with a ‘crafty’ gift shop.
Further inland along a track from the museum is a memorial to Flora McDonald the heroine who helped Bonny Prince Charlie to escape to France.

A must see on Skye.

We have always seen Croft cottages on different Scottish island on tv, but we had never seen one. It really gives a true feeling of living in those days, with original genuine antiquities from the era. Quite a nice shop as well. Well worth a visit if you are in the area but be aware the main road is a single road with plenty of passing spots.

While randomly traveling along the road to Uig, we happened upon this amazing little historic museum. If you are interested highland life, as well as the Jacobite risings, this place is for you!

Dugs welcome too.
