Welcome to ‘Meet the Books’!

This project explores the Fraser Mackintosh Collection of rare books at Inverness Library. It contains c. 5000 volumes collected by Charles Fraser-Mackintosh (1828-1901). It is run jointly between High Life Highland and academics from the University of the Highlands and Islands. You can find our most recent blogs below this post.


The collection is catalogued here:
