Our building which was previously Cross Primary School.

Welcome to Comunn Eachdraidh Nis.

Comunn Eachdraidh Nis was created in 1977 when the need for a facility to collect local history was recognised. It is situated in the village of North Dell in the North of Lewis. The building we are in was previously Cross Primary School. We have an extensive archive room containing records on many local topics of interest. This archive has been carefully collected and maintained by dedicated staff, volunteers and supporters of Comunn Eachdraidh Nis for over 40 years.

Major renovation work will be undertaken during 2018 which may result in unavoidable disruptions and reduced services at times. Due to these renovations, we regret that our Museum will not be open to the public during 2018. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

We also have a cafe and gift shop for you to enjoy too. We hope you can pay us a visit in North Dell soon!
