Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust’s new Viking ‘living museum’ will open fully to the public in April 2024. It will be named Ótrgard and will be sited within an area of common land known as The Plock on the outskirts of Kyle of Lochalsh – overlooking Skye Bridge. Ótrgard will promote a better understanding of the history and heritage of Viking life and settlement in Lochalsh, on Skye and the Western Isles and along the west coast of Scotland. It will attract visitors to Kyle, creating rich and rewarding cultural experiences for the widest possible range of audiences. The attraction will comprise an assortment of traditional Viking structures and work areas, interpreted for the amusement and edification of visitors and special-interest groups. Ótrgard will operate in tandem with a new community hub building and visitor centre on The Plock, where there will be a range of interpretive exhibitions, special events and other seasonal programming, participatory activities and learning opportunities, together with retail and catering facilities.

Pool House  is due to open for house tours in April 2021.

Nestled on the seashore and alongside a river, Pool House is a fascinating, quirky and characterful Highland home. Move through 300 years of rich history and discover the dramatic events that have taken place within these walls and the many notable people that visited the house over the years. A courthouse in the 1700s; the setting for a marital battle that scandalised Victorian society; through to becoming a WW2 headquarters, there will be something to delight, engage and captivate in every room.
