Sheila's Cottage

This is a faithful reconstruction of a traditional thatched croft house which was last lived in early this century by Sheila MacFadyen.

There is a display depicting the fascinating history of Ulva from Mesolithic Man to the present day.

Learn about the famous visitors to Ulva – including Dr David Livingston’s grandparents, Gen. Lachan Macquarie, ‘The Founder of Modern Australia’, Dr Johnson and James Boswell, Sir Walter Scott and Beatrix Potter. Also on display is the ‘Ulva Plaid Brooch’ recently found in a cave on the island and declared ‘treasure trove’ by the authorities.
