Skye's Hidden Heritage was launched in 2015 in an attempt not only to deliver a virtual information point about Rubh' an Dùnain, but also to try to re-establish a community in an historic landscape which has been derelict for so long.
The website has already welcomed thousands of visitors from all over the world. However, to continue to grow and thrive, any strong and vibrant community demands friendship and support.
The MacAskills of Rubh' an Dùnain Society is actively engaged in trying to create a broad-based online community representing everyone who has an interest in this land – formally designated in 2017 as a Historic Monument. Our vision is for Skye's Hidden Heritage to become the focus of Friends of Rubh' an Dùnain – a dynamic forward-looking virtual community, existing both online and offline, which will:
Engage with supporters of all ages, near and far Develop and extend social media interaction Offer a platform for exchange of research information; publicise results; fund raise Demonstrate the relevance of timeless history within a contemporary landscape Become a tangible a reference point for the study of indigenous Gaelic tradition, from boat-building to language and culture Help foster West Highland tourism
We invite all visitors, regardless of their location, language or culture, to add their views below about the peninsula, its history, this website – and how best we can repopulate Rubh' an Dùnain – online at least.
Alternatively, you can email us privately here. We look forward to hearing from you.
