Uncover stories from the past at the Highland Archive and Registration Centre. The building situated along the river from Bught Park is the state of the art home for the historic records of Inverness-shire, Ross & Cromarty, Sutherland and Nairnshire; and houses documents dating from the 13th century to the present day, including maps, records of schools, poor relief, churches and businesses, alongside family and estate papers. The building is also home to the Family History Centre, the Inverness Registration Service (with two wedding ceremony rooms and access to the ScotlandsPeople network) and Highland History and Culture website, Am Baile.
