The committee of Clyne Heritage Society meets monthly to discuss all projects, activities and relevant matters. Ongoing activities in which the general membership, or indeed, anyone, can become involved are shown below (click on any title for more information).
The archaeological excavation of the 18th Century inn and other building remains at Wilkhouse, Kintradwell, around 3 miles to the north of Brora, hosted by us in partnership with the University of Glasgow and Guard Archaeology Ltd.
In 2009 the Society undertook a rescue archaeological excavation on the site of the ruins of the Smiddy's house at Kilfeddermore, in Strath Brora, which was beginning to be completely eroded away by the River Brora.
This project involves vegetation clearance and general tidying of our beautiful historic, disused graveyard on the first Sunday of each month from March to June. Times are approximate but usually from about 11am to 12.30pm. Volunteers are always welcome.
On the first Thursday of each month, we meet in the Brora Public Library to catalogue the Society’s possessions.
We need your materials! The Society welcomes any information, artefacts, photographs or documents regarding the parish for its growing archive collection. It also welcomes enquiries and endeavours to respond to all contact promptly and helpfully.
Machinery salvage project. This took place as a result of the Society discovering many old machines from the former woollen mill in the building which was being demolished, following the building of new premises on the southern outskirts of Brora.
