School photos of school years and classes
Lochcroistean School opened in 1879 (replacing an earlier Gaelic school nearby) in response the Education Act of 1872 which determined that all children were entitled to an education. The school was built to accommodate 65 children; in 1892 there were 51 of school age in the district.
Crowlista School, now demolished, was located on the spot which is now the car park for the Uig Community Centre. It had been established following the Education Act of 1872 and built circa 1880 to accommodate the children of Crowlista, Timsgarry, Aird and some of Ardroil.
