Sixteen Local History Meetings

 

Local history is a far from forgotten subject in this part of Perthshire.

Our local history group – West Stormont Historical Society –  meets twice a month from mid September until mid May with no fewer than 16 meetings during this period.  Usually the second Monday of the month is a discussion Open Evening and the fourth Monday a speaker meeting.

All our meetings are open to the public and you are most welcome to come along.
