North Tolsta Historical Society

North Tolsta is a village on the Isle of Lewis, one of the islands that form the Western Isles, or Outer Hebrides, of Scotland. Over the years we, the local history society, have amassed a wealth of heritage research.

Now, we can share this archive knowledge of family, emigration, and Gaelic that was shaped by lives spent crofting, fishing, and of service in two Worlds Wars and the Merchant Navy.

We welcome your comments and any additional genealogical or historical information that you may be able to add to the rich tapestry of life that has been the hallmark of Tolsta for many generations.
