School Group, possibly Portree, c1920s
Look at the children's boots - they often had to walk a long way, sometimes miles to get to school. Children did not have many clothes. They might have only one dress - they wore white pinafores over their dresses to keep their dresses clean.

Clan Donald Library's Pocket Museum is a collection of notes, maps, photographs, illustrations and extracts from the archives which give an insight in to life on a highland estate. Clan Donald Library is located in a purpose built museum, the Museum of the Isles, in the grounds of Armadale Castle. The castle is situated in the heart of an estate, once part of the traditional lands of Clan Donald, on the Sleat Peninsula, in the south of the Isle of Skye
