Online Lecture Series

SHIHR offers regular talks by experts on Highland and Island historical research, normally one per month from October to May. The content of the talks will usually then feature in short articles in our publication West Highland Notes & Queries.

The talks are held online (via Zoom), which means that you can easily join us no matter where in the world you are.

Unless otherwise stated, each talk will begin at 7.30 pm (GMT) and last up to one hour, followed by questions. As the audience for each talk will be limited to 100, please book your place in plenty of time via e-mail. You will then be sent a code to allow you to join the talk via Zoom.

Participation fee

Participation in these lectures is free to members of the Society and to students. Non-members (other than students) are politely requested to make a donation of £5 to society funds.
