na Dorsan

The exhibition entitled ‘na Dorsan’ charts the history of Galson from prehistory to community buyout in 2007. It will showcase Iron Age and Viking artefacts discovered on the Galson coastline - on loan from National Museums Scotland and Museum nan Eilean, Stornoway. People have settled around Galson for thousands of years. Clues to the area’s prehistory survive in the form of objects found in excavations or as chance discoveries. These will be used to weave a story from the first farmers in the area, some 6000 years ago, through to the area’s contacts with the Viking world.

The launch of ‘na Dorsan’ is the first in a series of events to commemorate the centenary of the re-settling of Galson in 1924.  The events are the result of a collaboration with Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn, Airidhantuim Community Council, Galson Grazings Committee, National Museums of Scotland, and Museum nan Eilean. This will culminate in the unveiling, by Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn, of a stone monument named 'na Dorsan' in the Autumn of 2024. 

The exhibition will run until March 2025.
