Jenny and Nick Duffill
Jenny and Nick will be talking about the resettlement of families from Harris and Lewis to Fiscavaig, Portnalong and Fernilea in the 1920s,
the livings they made, the connections with modern times and the Lamb to Loom exhibition held in 2013 in Portnalong.
Portree Local History Society exists to promote the study of and an interest in the History of Portree,
its local area and surroundings, and the Isle of Skye in general.
Is e prÃ¬omh amas a'chomainn Ã¹idh dhaoine a dhÃ¹sgadh chan e a-mhÃ in ann an eachdrÃ idh baile Phortrigh ach ann an eachdraidh
an Eilein air fad. Tha sinn deÃ²nach daoine a bhrosnachadh gu bhith rannsachadh agus a'clÃ radh eachdraidh ar coimhearsnachdan.
We have a programme of meetings held through the Autumn, Winter and Spring months, and, in addition, organise outings
and visits of historical interest during the Summer.
Tha an Comann a'coinneachadh a h-iule mÃ¬os ann a Taigh na SgÃ¬re ann am Portrigh.
Tha na coinneamhan air an cumail ann am Beurla ach b'fhÃ¬or thoigh leinn luchd na GÃ idhlig a bhith an sÃ s san obair cuideachd.
