Description

Step back to a time where life’s essentials were of a bare minimum. Located in a delightful setting, this typical thatched crofthouse has been restored to how it would have looked in the 1870s. Smell the peat fire, discover the box beds and try to set the traditional Shetland mouse trap. The crofthouse also has a lovely garden with a path which leads to a restored watermill.
Open daily 10.00-13.00 and 14.00-17.00 throughout the summer. Entry is free, donations welcome.
