The Sollas township in North Uist was formed 100 years ago in 1899. For 50 years from the time of the 'Clearances',and prior to this formation Sollas had been occupied by a succession of tacksmen. Today all the crofts except one are occupied by descendants of the original crofters who settled here a century ago. Many of these original crofters came from Heiskeir. This event was celebrated this year and a memorial site  officially opened in July 1999.
