"Preserving the history of the parish of Sleat on the Isle of Skye"
Meetings will now be held on a Wednesday so we don’t clash with other events held in the Seòmar Chruinneachaidh or the old cafe next door. The start time is usually 7.30pm, unless otherwise stated in the programme. Our usual venue is the Conference Room/Seòmar Cruinneachaidh at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig shown as SMO in the programme below. From time to time we use other venues – if so, these will be specified on the programme. Monthly meetings are free to members, while the entry for non-members is usually £3.
