Wooden bead abacus originally from Dunskellor Primary School in North Uist.
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 Carinish School; the collection is currently being digitally catalogued in Torlum and we hope to have an online version for research and general enquiries by Summer 2018.
