Due to the ongoing situation in the UK with COVID-19, the Highland Archive Centre is closed to the public until further notice.
We will endeavour to answer email enquiries to the best of our ability, however as we will have limited access to documents this may not be possible.
We will also be working with our partners across Highland including The Highland Council to provide support to our communities where it is needed most. Thank you for your understanding.
The Highland Archive Centre at Bught Road, Inverness is responsible for collecting, preserving, and making accessible, archives relating to the history of the Highlands. In addition to bespoke searchroom and repository facilities, the centre incorporates a dedicated Family History Room, and a specialist Conservation Studio. The centre also accommodates the Council’s Records Management Service.
The archive collections at the Highland Archive Centre date from the 14th century to the present day covering the counties of Inverness, Nairn, Ross and Cromarty and Sutherland. Find out more about the collections.
