WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?

Our members, who come from all walks of life, meet regularly throughout the year. Our varied interests include natural history, geology, archaeology and local history. These are reflected in our extensive lecture and excursion programmes.

Evening lectures from experts in their field are held once a month from Autumn to Spring in the hall at Millburn Academy, Inverness. These are free of charge to members.

Summer study excursions for members are organised, at cost, to all parts of Scotland. These take place on Saturdays.

On joining you will receive full details of the lecture and excursion programmes.

While keeping faith with the spirit of our predecessors, today's Field Club hopes, by this varied range of activities, to stimulate an interest in, and an understanding of, our local environment, history and heritage.
