This Old Schoolhouse on Mingulay closed in April 1910. Within two years the island had been completely evacuated and some 2000 years of continuous human settlement ended. Some 20 years later St Kilda was evacuated and its school abandoned. However, the school log-books were retained and have recently been made available on-line. Details are available through Am Paipear, the community newspaper of the Uists.
