Commemorating and recording the impact of the First World War on South Loch Ness Commemorating and recording the impact of the FirstWorld War on South Loch Ness In the centenary year of the start of the First WorldWar, the Heritage Group would like to do something to remember, research and record the ways in which the war affected South Loch Ness and those living in the area. Alister Chisholm 01463 715713 alister.chisholm@btinternet.com would be very pleased to have any suggestions as to how such a project could be tackled. Please get in touch with him with any ideas.

The Heritage Group’s next event will be at Stratherrick Hall on Tuesday 23rd April at 7.30 pm.   Dr Iain Robertson of the UHI Centre for History will give us a presentation on the impact of the First World War on land tenure in the Highlands.   His scope will be broad; he will describe the traditional, historic relationship between Highlanders and the land, leading then to the tensions that precipitated the land raids of the 19th century.  The main aspect of his subject will be the way the war then expedited and extended the provision of land for the Highland population, with the topic being finally brought right up to date with the modern community buy-out movement.   This promises to be a really interesting talk on something most people have little detailed knowledge of, but which helps to explain why land tenure in the Highlands continues to be a major issue.

Iain’s presentation will be preceded by a brief AGM of the Wade Bridge of Whitebridge Trust.
