The cottages are owned by Murray & Geraldine Wilson who, in 1998 could see the potential of the disused school buildings and seperate schoolmasters house. Murray in particular spent his childhood holidays with his parents staying at the adjoining farm. Indeed the Wilsons have been holidaying in Kildonan since the 1920s when the school was in full use until it closed the 1980s.
