  • It is a very fine collection of houses, some of them can be viewed within also. There are posters with descriptions of life as it was going on in these houses. all in all very exciting outdoor museum. They have a wonderful shop on site with many local products.

  • This is a very interesting and informative visit.Staff are extremely well informed and helpful. Toilets were spotless.Well worth visiting this for insight into Lewis,s history and culture 
  • Reconstruction of com lived those Islanders. Smoke that must constantly be a surprise my personally bothered me much. Stroll through the different rooms of the House is that you get an idea of how they lived. The rooms, kitchen, utensils, etc... I also found it very interesting to visit the House abandoned in the 1960s of the last century. Lounge with eyeglasses worn on the top of the table, see the clothes, etc...

  • Amazing trip back in time to see what a real black house was like. Just need to mind your head going through some Very low doorways. Very interesting information also available at the Visitor Centre too.
  • Fascinating insight into Hebridies life at the turn of the last century. Top tip: make sure to take midge repellent!
  • Brilliantly preserved and presented Black House. A fascinating place.
  • Epic party scene. #FromTexas
  • Everything.
