Virtual Orkney North Isles
The ICOM AVICOM awarded Virtual Orkney North Isles is one of the mediums created to build a shared exhibit virtual platform.
Caen was a real township in the Strath of Kildonan where people raised families for many generations and tended the land and their animals. The last tenants left in 1825 when the township was cleared by the landowners for more profitable sheep farming. The model portrays life around 1800.
Virtual Uist Walk
Over the month of August, CEUT organised three heritage walks in Gaelic. These were an opportunity to go outdoors, explore heritage places, and learn more about these locations on North Uist in Gaelic. We have created a virtual walk of the Dun an Sticir Gaelic walk.
Skriðuklaustur Monastery - 1550
Skriðuklaustur was the last Catholic monastery to be founded in Iceland before the Reformation. In June 1500 the farm of Skriða (in the valley of Fljótsdalur in eastern Iceland) was given to a community of Augustinian canons. However, there had already been religious activity on the site for some years before the official grant. This digital reconstruction shows the monastery at Skriðuklaustur just before its closure in the 1550s. Both the exterior and interior have been reconstructed, revealing the probable appearance of spaces such as the dormitory, infirmary, kitchen, store-rooms, chapter-house and church.
Just a few miles north of Ballycastle, on the edge of the earth overlooking the wild Atlantic, lies the rugged, windswept outcrop of Downpatrick Head. Now a Signature Discovery Point on the famed Wild Atlantic Way, the area provides unparalleled views of the ocean, including a unique vantage point over the Stags of Broadhaven. A majestic sea stack rises tower-like from the sea, with its centuries of layered rock providing shelter to thousands of nesting sea birds.
West Highland 100
The West Highland Museum 100 project showcases digital cultural heritage from the Western Highlands of Scotland. This collaboration between West Highland Museum and the University of St Andrews is exploring new ways of interacting with heritage, taking the museum experience into the home.
Vikings Live will take you behind the scenes at the Lofotr Viking Museum. Sail across the sea, land at the harbour and receive the hospitality of the Chieftan's House.
Ceòl Uibhist a Tuath
‘Ceòl Uibhist a Tuath’ takes a look at the music of North Uist through the ages. We journey through the works of John MacCodrum and Dòmhnall ‘Ruadh’ Choruna who still influence present day musicians such as singers Julie Fowlis, Margaret Callan, Linda MacLeod and the band Beinn Lee who have played major roles in modernising the tradition. Songwriters, Calum and Rory MacDonald are known the world over, their influence international as part of the band Runrig. Here you will find poetry, music, song, piping, dance-music and field-workers who played an important role in the preservation of oral and written works.
Scapa Flow Tour
Welcome to the former Royal Navy base at Lyness, Hoy. The Base lies at the heart of Scapa Flow, which provides an enormous sheltered anchorage, in a commanding position from which to control the North Sea and the North Atlantic. Scapa Flow was the base for the Navys Grand Fleet in WW1, and again for the (renames) Home Fleet in WWII.
