“The highlight of my recent,
brief visit to Scotland.”
Don’t be surprised if you see strange goings-on in the Land Sea and Islands Centre after the doors have closed for the day. It’s a popular place for small community events and meetings of all kinds, and a great location for crafts and workshops.
Over the years we have held a variety of talks and presentations, many of them with a natural history theme. They are always lively events, well-illustrated and full of fascinating information. So watch this page for all the latest forthcoming events of all types, and come along!
We welcome enquiries from community groups and individuals. Drop in or send us an email if you would like to use the Centre for an event or you have any queries about our facilities. We have disabled access, a car park and accessible toilets.
FIRST WORLD WAR EXHIBITION: ARISAIG REMEMBERS
Our First World War Exhibition which has recently finished, commemorated the lives of Arisaig people who served in the first World War. Stunning portraits of Arisaig men and women reminded us of their youth, and the ordeals they were to face.
Macdonald, Campbell, MacEachen, Gillies, MacVarish, and many more familiar Arisaig names feature prominently here – the unique Arisaig and South Morar Record of Service, which has been the main source for the remarkable photographs, is littered with these names.
Military and genealogy records, family history and local knowledge have all provided background information, and helped bring colour and substance to the stories of people long gone.
An A4 booklet has been produced which contains the research findings to date about those who went to war from Arisaig. There is much yet to discover, but there is already a great deal to interest anyone with an Arisaig connection.
The booklet is available at the Land, Sea & Islands Centre.
