Glengarry Heritage

In 2022, Am Baile entered into an exciting partnership with the Glengarry Heritage Centre to digitise and make available much of the varied and fascinating material from the Centre's permament exhibitions and reference library. Links to view this material are available further down the page.

The Glengarry Visitor Centre Association was formed in 1998 to explore and preserve the rich local history of Glengarry and to provide a connection with the many people who left their native lands for a new life in Glengarry County, Canada as well as other places around the world. The Glengarry Visitor Centre opened in 1999 but in May 2006 this was replaced by the Glengarry Heritage Centre which is situated in a dedicated room in the Glengarry Community Hall, just off the main A87 road through Invergarry to the Isle of Skye.

The Centre houses a collection of stories, photographs and documents contributed by current and former residents of Glengarry as well as people with Glengarry contacts around the world. The Centre's archive continues to grow of Glengarry history and welcome visitors with Glengarry links, often in search of their ‘roots’. In addition to the exhibitions and reference library, the Centre has local census records and facilities for scanning and printing from their collections.  Researchers from home or abroad are very welcome.  The Centre also provides an information point for the many visitors and walkers who come to Glengarry to enjoy the outstanding beauty and natural history of the area.
