Spotlight on - Comunn Eachdraidh Nis

Comunn Eachdraidh Nis (English: Ness Historical Society) is our local museum, archive and tearoom with a variety of in-depth and informative exhibitions. An experience in the Comunn Eachdraidh Nis is truly bilingual, with panel content explained in both English and Scottish Gaelic. Gaelic is also spoken freely between staff members, volunteers and customers.

Housed within an impressive, newly-renovated facility, permanent interpretation in the free-to-visit museum details a variety of subjects, including local businesses, crofting, fishing, weaving, schools, and World War I impact. The archive, visitable by appointment, has been maintained and compiled for over 40 years by locals and a dedicated group of volunteers.
