New Highland Archive and Registration Service centre opens

Despite the recent vandalism a fortnight ago against the new Highland Archive and Registration Service premises at the Bught in Inverness (see Highland Archive Centre in Inverness vandalised), the new £10.5 million centre was opened today on schedule.

Mealaibh ur naidheachd, agus gur math a thèid leibh!!

For more on what the centre can offer, visit the site's website at

The next Highland Council archives centre to open as part of the institution's 'Hubs and Spokes' strategy will be the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre (Ionad Tasglainn an Eilean Sgitheanach is Loch Ailse) later this year at the Elgin Hostel in Portree, which will include a public searchroom, exhibition space, and a controlled repository which will accommodate the current collections alongside relevant records relating to Skye and Lochalsh which are at present held in Inverness.

UPDATE: Coverage of the new centre in the Press and Journal is available at www.pressandjournal.co.uk/Article.aspx/1455737?UserKey=
