As part of the Highland Archive Service, the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre in Portree is responsible for archives relating to Skye and Lochalsh. The records date from the 17th century to the present, and are strongest from the mid-19th century. You can find out more about our collections here. The Archive Centre also cares for an extensive collection of local photographs, some of which are available for purchase. You can view a selection on the Am Baile website.
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 feel free to drop in – staff are always on hand to assist you with your research.
