The Skye Ecomuseum, Interpretation and design tender


Situated is in the north-east of the Isle of Skye, in the Scottish Highlands, Staffin is renowned for its scenery and thousands of people from all over the world come to see its scenic landmarks which include the Quiraing, Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. Known as Taobh Sear in Gaelic, Staffin has a resident population of more than 500 people, who live in 23 different crofting townships dotted around Staffin Bay and the Trotternish Ridge. They have the good fortune to live in an area which has a range of top-tier heritage and environmental designations, possessing an international reputation for geology, palaeontology and cultural heritage. It is the purpose of this project to bring all these aspects of this community to life through the stories and experiences of the people of Staffin.

The Skye Ecomuseum, also known as ‘Ceumannan,’ is a museum without walls. All the exhibits are located in its environment and require a short walk to uncover their images and stories. It was established in 2008 by the Staffin Community Trust (SCT).

Staffin Community Trust (SCT) wishes to appoint a consultant with experience of working with a small team to deliver a community led interpretation project across 14 sites that make up Ceumannan: The Skye Ecomuseum.

We are looking for the successful consultant to review the scoping and research work undertaken in the development phase of the project and consider current data and information about visitors to the area.
