When we visited ‘Gearrannan Blackhouse Museum’ on the Isle Lewis in 2014, I had a field day. I had see so many abandoned Blackhouses (cottages) on our trip through the Outer Hebrides, that now I was going to see what one would have looked when habitable. But before that, I found another thing in the museum that I find fascinating, is how some of the inhabitance would work in one part of the Blackhouse at their weaving and live in the other half, oh and not forgetting any livestock they had, lived with them as well.
Just imagine working all day long at the loom, I found it very difficult to take photos, as it was dark and of the weaver was moving, plus the loom. So theses photos are the best that I took, although all but one was changed to mono. But hopefully they give you an idea of how a weavers life would have been.
