Inverness Library

This may be of interest to members



I am e-mailing to let the association know about an event at Inverness Library which may be of interest to your members. On Monday 12th August at 2pm we will be joined by Cape Breton University Press who will be promoting two new publications on the Highland Clearances (see attached) I would be much obliged if you would be so kind as to let colleagues/members know about the event. To book places or for more information please contact me by e-mail or telephone Inverness Library on 01463 236463.

Best wishes Julie Corcoran

“Lost” Jacobite documents

I have this through the website to me. I don’t have time to handle it but perhaps someone does


Dear “45” Assoc,

Would your organization be interested in lost historical information associated to the “45” and the rediscovery of art found from the “45”? Would your association be interested in some wonderful documents pertaining to Jacobite art. Best regards, Gary Gianotti




Dr Archibald Cameron

1745 Association member Mrs Sonia Cameron Jacks who many of you know well has had “a lifelong interest” in Dr Arcibald Cameron the brother of Donald Cameron of Lochiel. She has written a booklet entitled “The Last Jacobite Martyr” on the life and untimely death of Dr Archie

The booklet is 28 pages long, well worth a read and is available from Sonia for £3.75 inc postage (in UK) from Sonia at

Ceol Mara,  Ardesier, by Inverness, IV2 7RU

Cheques drawn on a UK bank made out to Sonia Cameron Jacks please. 

Sonia has made no mention of posting overseas but if anyone outside the UK  wants one I’ll see what can be done
