HFHS and the Archive Centre

The Highland Archive Centre is run by Highlife Highland who are responsible for its opening hours and staffing arrangements.

The Centre is located by Bught Park in the south western outskirts of the city.
Click here to see the map on the Highland Council Archives' own website.
It's about a 20 minute walk from the city centre (cross the bridge at the bottom of the High Street 
- below the castle - turn left, and walk beside the river until you reach the Archive Centre).
There is a limited seasonal service (three or four buses a day in the summer) from the bus station. 
Click this line for the summer 2013 timetable (No. 19A to the Aquadome which is adjacent to the Centre).  

HFHS volunteers are usually on duty at our desk in the Genealogy Room on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10am-1pm.
If you wish to make an appointment to meet someone from the society to help you with your research outwith those hours 
please ring the Genealogy Room on the following number and the staff there will put you in touch with one of 
the HFHS officers to make a mutually convenient appointment: 01463-256444.
Alternatively, please email the society in advance of your arrival in Inverness.
