An Iodhlann and the Friends of the Argyll Papers are establishing new groups to uncover stories about people and events in Tiree’s history. To do this, we will be exploring the original historical records held both in An Iodhlann and in the Argyll Papers at Inveraray Castle. These small groups will meet on a weekly basis to share the process of exploration and discovery.
