Lismore Heritage Museum

Shauna Cameron Architect Ltd

A board member of the Comann Eachdraidh, whose great aunts had lived in the cottage, gifted the site, the ruins of which were all that remained. The Croft House was built by the local community and craftsmen from Argyll. The interior is furnished with original pieces from islander' homes. The Heritage Centre has an exhibition room, library, cafÂŽe, shop and hosts a wide variety of events. Insulated with sheep's wool, clad in larch and roofed with turf, it blends into the landscape. The underfloor is heating fuelled by a GSHP. It has made a valuable contribution to island life.
