About the Applecross Historical Society

Conscious that the historical, religious and cultural background of this unique and isolated Highland community was in danger of being lost in a rapidly changing world, a group of local people established the Applecross Historical Society in 1998.

In order to create a permanent record of past history from the Early Settlers and Maelrubha to the recent and distinctive crofting and fishing community which now exists in the 21st Century, a derelict building has been renovated to provide a location for the display of records and artefacts.  The opening of the Heritage Centre took place on Good Friday, 18th April, 2003.  Since then, there have been extensions and improvements.

The Historical Society's mission is to advance the education of the public by research, collation, recording, publication by any means, dissemination and promotion of the history of Applecross and the surrounding area.

With the exception of the Curator, who is currently being funded by the Applecross Landscape Partnership Scheme, the Society and the Heritage Centre are run entirely by local volunteers.

Applecross Historical Society is a company limited by guarantee and is a registered charity.
