Museum Collection

The Collections held by Comann Eachdraidh Uibhist a Tuath comprise over 1000 artefacts that represent the heritage and culture of communities in North Uist. The Collections mainly date to the late 19th and 20th Centuries.

Currently the artefacts are held in the local authority museum store at Torlum on Benbecula.  The goal is to create a permanent home for the material at Taigh Chearsabhagh in a purpose built viewing area adjacent to the Museum; the collection is currently being digitally catalogued in Torlum and we hope to have an online version for research and general enquiries by Summer 2015.

In addition Comann Eachdraidh Uibhist a Tuath hold a wide-ranging photographic collection of approximately 3500 prints and transparencies.
