Comunn Eachdraidh Bharraidh & Bhatarsaidh


The Comunn Eachdraidh (Historical Society) was formed in 1995 to conserve and promote the culture and heritage of the islands of Barra and Vatersay.  The Society collects artefacts, documents and photographs, and has built up  extensive archives and collections.  It arranges exhibitions, displays and events of a social, educational and recreational nature.
