And see how it was to live with a peat fire burning all day long. People and animals sharing the same place at that time.

These thatched roof homes are worth viewing if you have time. The museum has furnished each croft with the respective items, from furniture, to tools, to leather making areas. Fun to see

This is a well done replica of living in a Croft neighborhood, well worth your time. Note, the toilet is downhill and away from this museum so be prepared.

We stopped here not really expecting very much. These crofts are really good. Wonderfully reconstructed and giving a good idea of past life in the Highlands and Islands. I am so glad we stopped. It only cost £2.50 which is great value.

A great place to spend an hour walking round the different little croft houses learning all about life on the island in the past as well. Lots to see and look at. All for a bargain price of £2.50 per adult, children 50p. A must...More

Sorry I can't really help you as the Colbost Croft Museum was closed when I visited last October and didn't see any prices. Can't imagine it being too expensive though. We hired a car to travel around Skye so not sure if... More
