Lorn Archaeological and Historical Society was formed in 1963 by local heritage enthusiasts and has continued for 60 years to bring together those in the Oban and Lorn area who want to learn more, with interesting winter lectures, summer visits, workshops and, in the past, some serious archaeological activities.

The new committee formed in late 2022 are keen to follow in these highly illustrious footsteps to ensure the 60th Anniversary is celebrated, by creating a varied programme of talks, visits and activities

10th June 2023 – what a wonderful 60th anniversary celebratory tea party at Dunollie

We are VERY pleased to finally bring the incredible resource of the archive of published journals and newsletters to the online audience.

We NEED more volunteers to help us – PLEASE offer your time and expertise, behind the scenes is fine.

And you are very welcome to donate too, there are plenty future opportunities if we have the funding.
