Fodor's Review

In the 1950s and 1960s local priest Father John Morrison collected South Uist artifacts, displayed today at the Kildonan Museum and Heritage Centre. 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 make this place interesting.
