Meet the Author

Wednesday April 12th, 4pm

Donations welcome

John McLellan's debut novel The Faultline was a bestseller at Ullapool Bookshop last year. Essentially a coming-of-age story, the novel is set in the late 70s round Kinlochewe, weaving in details about mountains, geology, a crashed wartime plane, swimming in upland lochs.

John is coming to share with us the stories behind his book, his journey as a writer and answer any questions we might have. We hope you can join us for what is sure to be an interesting afternoon.

Exploring sustainable rural landscapes through cultural heritage objects in Wester Ross Biosphere 

A team of researchers at UHI are working with local communities to explore the different ways people engage with rural landscapes over time. During this evening event we'll learn about objects in the Museum collection and discuss their significance in terms of sustainable rural landscapes in past, present and for the future.

The workshop will be facilitated with involvement from Zoe Russell, a research associate at the Centre for Mountain Studies, UHI working on CULTIVATE

Dixon's Book Group

Thursday 27th April 

2.30pm - 3.30pm

A regular group where the focus of each meeting is on the information contained within Dixon's Gairloch and Guide to Loch Maree.  Maybe you are already familiar with the book (first published in 1886) and would like to revisit it – or perhaps you are new to the area and would like to join a group to learn more about the local history, traditions and past land use. 

We will be exploring this wonderful book in more depth in the style of a book group. Each session will explore a particular chapter.  Our next session will be lead by Dorothy Malone and we’ll be looking at Ancestry and Names (Part II Chapter I, The Baronets of Gairloch and some other Gairloch Mackenzies (Part I Chapter XIV).
