Inverness will be the home to a new £4 million ($7.3 million U.S.) heritage centre, it was announced today. The Highland Archive Centre will house significant documents from post-Culloden legislation, documents relating to the Highland Clearances and details of 15th-century council meetings. The new centre will also contain a family research facility.
Work on the project will begin next year, coinciding with the Highland 2007 year of culture. It is hoped the facility will open in 2009.
