Highland Council Archives - temporary closure for relocation

Both the Highland Council Archives and its Genealogy Service will be closing temporarily in order to facilitate the move to new facilities in Invernesse. The following is the press release:


The Temporary Closure of Public Service in Inverness.

The Highland Council’s Archive Service will relocate to the new Highland Archive & Registration Centre, Inverness following the handover of the new facility to the Council on 21st August.

While the transfer of the archive collections, staff and equipment is taking place, it will be necessary to close the existing service maintained from Inverness Library as follows:

· The Archive Searchroom will close on Friday 28th August.

· The Council’s Genealogy Service will close on Friday 25th September.

Following relocation to the new facility, it is expected that both services will re-open to the public on Monday 26th October.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our readers.


The public services in our area archive centres in Caithness, Lochaber, and Skye & Lochalsh will continue to function normally, although the service in Skye will also relocate to new premises later this year.
