Three people are in an exhibition space. Two are wearing VR headsets and crouching down. Another is reading a wall text with an interactive screen about Uist inhabitants through the milennia.

Uist Unearthed

Explore the award-winning Uist Unearthed multimedia exhibition, which reimagines five archaeological sites from Uist using digital technology. This interactive exhibition features previously unseen material from North Uist’s archaeological sites. Explore digital interactives, stories, and games and look out for advertised VR headset workshops. Download the Uist Unearthed app to begin your journey into the islands’ history and prehistory.
