Season’s Greetings

14 December 2022

Wishing all our members, followers and supporters very best wishes for the holidays, and a happy and healthy new year!

We are very grateful to Highland Archive Service for supplying this wonderful image (GB0232/HCA/D1030/2/1 – Sradag Comic Strip from 1960), you can find a translation for each cell below.

This summer, Highland Archive Service became the latest Scottish service to achieve Archive Service Accreditation, the UK-wide standard of good practice and service development. Based across four sites, in Inverness, Wick, Fort William, and Portree, the service preserves over 700 years of the documentary heritage of the Scottish Highlands.
