Macurdie’s Barn of Laughs Exhibition – Isle of Skye

May 6th, 2012 § 9 comments

I was in Skye this weekend to give a talk about Forest Pitch for Atlas Arts in Portree. It was a lovely weekend. I took the time to visit “Macurdie’s Barn of Laughs Exhibition”. The last time I was in Skye, we drove past this sign, and I wanted to go visit – but we were on our way elsewhere so we didn’t. However, I certainly am glad I made it back this time….

    Hi Craigh!
    Your images of Macurdies barn looks great. Thanks for sharing! I was there myself this summer and it was one of the highlights of my trip. Did you get the chance to meet him at all? I spoke to a guy who sat outside the barn and had put up a tent on Macurdie’s land. He said that Macurdies still was alive and that Macurdie had made the exhibition about himself… I find this very intriguing! Unfortunately I didn’t meet him. I would like to get in contact with him so thought maybe you would know how?
    Thanks man!

    Fantastic, we visited in 2010 whilst on a bike tour of Skye. Sides were sore laughing. Wouldn’t miss it in future. Absolutely worth a visit.

    Enlightening. Wonderful. Exciting. Fascinating. Invigorating. saw this exhibition in 2008 and 2010 (when I saw a mouse scooting about the place and wondered if it was actually an exhibit, escaped), Loved it and felt this was the best exhibition I had ever seen…
    except for the dead cow with it’s hoofs in the air as we left Camus na ha, which i did think was trying to upstage some of McUrdie’s exhibits to be honest.

    Fascinating Craig … never seen this before but will surely look out for it our next visit. Thanks.

  • Loved this place! Photo’s show it’s a bit more organised since I was there about 20 years ago! I still laugh at the wit! Thank you McCurdy

  • Loved this place- still think about it after 20 odd years.
