Today we have some photos illustrating the weaving done in the living museum of Gearrannan, a formerly inhabited "blackhouse village" on the Isle of Lewis. In this case these houses were occupied until the late sixties. (The name "blackhouse" comes from the difference between the older stone houses and the newer white-painted modern housing.)
The weaver here is creating a tweed cloth - the (relatively) famous Harris Tweed.
