The Highland Archive Service

Highland Archive Centre

The Highland Archive Service preserves, conserves and makes accessible the archive collections in the care of The Highland Council, and provides a Records Management Service to the authority.

The service is delivered through four archive centres, located in Caithness, Lochaber and Skye & Lochalsh, and the Highland Archive Centre at Inverness which also includes a Conservation Unit and a dedicated Family History Centre. The archives date from the 14th century to the present day, and include records of schools, poor relief, churches, businesses, and family and estate papers.

Whether your interest is local or family history, or you have a spare hour to browse our changing exhibitions, there is something to appeal to everyone. Please visit our website or contact:
