In late 2015 Ballachulish Community Association held a successful exhibition to celebrate and remember a number of local anniversaries, including the following:
A Timeline of the Ballachulish area was included within the exhibition, and is reproduced here (see menu to left) as a permanent record. Please note, however, that the information provided is not 100% accurate and we would welcome any information that will improve this document. It is hoped that the Timeline will also be available to buy as a booklet in the near future – more details to follow.
More history on certain aspects of the village and surroundings can be found elsewhere on this site. A list of books and websites for further reading is also included.
One thing that came up time and time again during the course of the exhibition was that the community would like a permanent home for some form of museum. The amount of information and artifacts that we drew together for a brief exhibition was amazing, and so the community will be considering acquiring a suitable site or building to make the exhibition permanent. This is obviously a long term plan, but in the short term a second exhibition was held in October 2016 and another exhibition is being planned for 2017.
Following a Public Meeting on Sunday 13th March 2016 to discuss the possibility of setting up a heritage group to further the aim of creating a village museum, we now have a working group to progress options and ideas. More Information Here.
