About

Blackhouses were common dwellings in the Hebrides. This was the last group to be occupied, being vacated in 1974. Built in the late 19th century, restored and in some cases rebuilt in the 1990s, the village includes a museum, interpretation centre, shop, café, self-catering blackhouses and a hostel.
