The Heritage Centre houses an interesting collection of artefacts and records relating to the social and industrial life of the Slate Islands of Argyll. There are photographs and records of the people engaged in the former slate industry covering the period 18-20th century. School parties and other groups are very welcome to visit the Centre by appointment and individuals and small groups are welcome at all time. Displays include:

Genealogical records and information
The centre is open to the public 6 days (Sunday to Friday) a week between 11.00 to 16.00hrs from April to October.
The centre houses our Archives including original papers, documents and artefacts. It also contains various census returns and Rent Rolls which are used to assist enquirers with Genealogical research.
As well as displaying exhibits relevant to the local slate industry the heritage centre offers an interesting selection of reasonably priced gifts and souvenirs to take away. From Jean Adams’ world famous stone cats to photographs and paintings of the area there is a good range of local items, some of which are shown below.
