Take a short walk along the machair track from the end of the Kildonan road to the former site of an impressive Iron Age wheelhouse. The QR code post is nestled in a hollow to the west of the track. Wheelhouses are a type of roundhouse unique to the Outer Hebrides and Shetland, so-called because in plan the houses look like the spokes of a wheel. Scan the QR code on the post with the Uist Unearthed app, and squeeze through Cill Donnain’s narrow entrance passageway. Learn more about the painstakingly crafted artefacts that were discovered here.
