Highland Roots - Family History from the Heart of the Scottish Highlands

Local History Societies & Heritage Groups
A few of the smaller heritage groups don't have websites, in which case we've provided a telephone number instead when known - but by doing an internet search for the relevant name you may find a more up-to-date contact for them. Some groups not listed here may be contacted via the Heritage Centres and Museums they run - so see their sites. The list that follows is not exhaustive, and is probably already out of date. It will be added to as information comes to hand.
