"Preserving the history of the parish of Sleat on the Isle of Skye"
Our last meeting was a resounding success and the committee would like to thank everyone who helped with the research and with putting on the display. Nearly 60 people attended the exhibition in Talla Dearg on the Wednesday night. The other three days of the exhibition were just as busy with some people making making more than one visit. For those of you who were unable to get to see it, we hope to display it at the Skye and Lochalsh Archive Centre and at Talla Duisdal later in the year.
