'Based in the Hebridean island of Lewis, we aim to further understanding of the history of Scottish islands in their wider Celtic and Nordic contexts through: events including talks, visits, and conferences ... While most of our events are in English, the Trust are committed to encouraging Gaelic, and there is a substantial amount of Gaelic material in the various archives with which we have close links.'

'The Stornoway Historical Society was formed in 1992. To date it has been instrumental in raising awareness of the general public to the need to preserve all aspects of the town's early and most recent history. It has actively participated in the presentation of information on the town through exhibitions, public lectures and publications ... Membership of the Society is open to all who have an interest active and passive, in the history of the town.'
'For more than 30 years meetings have been held on the second Tuesday each month during the winter season ... starting at 19.30. Tea and coffee after speakers have finished allows discussion and networking, or more closely questioning the speaker of the day. Members discuss observations of the preceding weeks and bring notable events or observations to the attention of the meeting. The public is invited and encouraged to attend events, lectures and field excursions. We have a very friendly atmosphere and are as sociable as we are interested in the science and natural history presented to us.'
