Kildonan Museum


This afternoon, we enjoyed a visit to Kildonan Museum.

Flora Macdonald gave a wonderful talk about dyeing wool and making ink with crotal (lichens). She launched her first book last year at Kildonan and is working on a second book now.

Norma Neill was spinning and gave a fascinating talk about Eriskay gensays (sweaters) and how each section has a meaning and how men could be identified by their unique sweater.

I loved the Angus McPhee exhibit in particular.

Jon made a new friend.

And we found the name of our Mystery Weaver at Kildonan Museum! It appears that he was the father of the local Bard.
