Kildonan Museum and Heritage Centre

Kildonan Museum and Heritage Centre Review

The Kildonan Museum and Heritage Centre houses South Uist artifacts collected in the 1950s and 1960s by Father John Morrison, a local priest. On your left when you enter is a simple exhibition with concise and unsentimental descriptions of living on South Uist that reads, "However we interpret it there is nothing surer than that history has as much to do with the present as the past." The simple details, like how people filled their mattresses or the names for the tools they used in their houses are what makes this place interesting.
