Island Voices - Guthan nan Eilean

St Andrews Virtual St Kilda Experience The Virtual St Kilda exhibition is up and running at Taigh Chearsabhagh , and the “mystery voice” is now revealed as that of regular Island Voices contributor, Archie Campbell , who also prepared the Gaelic version of the bilingual introduction. The project is headed up by the St Andrews University Open Virtual Worlds research group, working closely with local groups in Uist.

You can walk around Village Bay (or fly over it!), exploring inside and outside various buildings.
