Interested in Historical Monuments?

Rita Campbell, Secretary of the Portree Local History Society attended a talk in Kyleakin given by Tom Parnell of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and
Historical Monuments of Scotland.

He showed examples of examples of what is available on their website.

They are working on a project to publish and digitise Illustrated Architectural Guides, one of which will be The Western Seaboard (Western Isles, Lochaber and Skye and Lochalsh). They encourage heritage groups and schools, among others, to contribute any material on the built environment, e.g. photographs, drawings or just
information or stories.

They can be contacted through their website.
