Thule House

Thule House

Thule House, on 18 Tobson, was one of the first "white houses" built in Bernera, probably in the early to mid 1800s by Murdo Macdonald. This house has had many extensions added on to it over the years, with one part used as a shop by Murdo's son Malcolm Macdonald.

The writer of gothic fiction, William Black, spent holidays at Thule House and was inspired to write A Princess of Thule.
