We had fun at the Skye Museum of Island Life. They had a great collection of old things. And we could move in and out and touch things.
More rocks. Hard to imagine living in a rock house with a thatch (or more often slate) roof. I read a couple of Scottish histories, and they alluded to the poverty, squalor, and pride of the highlanders, suggesting that they defended a clan/tribal lifestyle that had not evolved into obscurity on its own. They were continually being forced out of their huts. I left Scotland wondering whose version of history was more accurate: the neat cottages here shown at the museum, or the highland crofts and huts historians referred to.
