CROMAR HISTORY GROUP : Local History in the Howe of Cromar, Aberdeenshire
Cromar History Group is a lively group of people with a common interest in learning about, preserving and promoting the history and heritage of our local area. It is our aim to share what we learn and make it accessible to everyone who might want to know more about Cromar’s fascinating past.
To find out more about what we do and to join us, see Aims.
History Talks – We run a series of History talks, open to the public, every winter. Dates and details for these are shown on our Talks page. The 2018-19 programme will be starting in October. Our next talk:
14h March 2019 – The Old Ship of Zion: Singing the Gospel along Scotland’s North-East Coast, 1859-2009
On-Line Archive – If you are looking to search our archives for details of your ancestors or submit material to our archives, then go to our Archives pages.
Excursions – Every year, we organise visits during the summer to interesting historical sites.To ensure numbers are manageable, these are open to members only and their invited guests. For full details see our Members’ page.
Publications – We publish a well regarded magazine on local history called “Echoes from Cromar’s Past” every year. For details of how to submit relevant material to this or buy back copies, see our Publications.
Projects – We undertake projects from time to time, identified and led by members of the Group. Our most recent project was to put our archives on line. Another project has been to create:
HISTORY WALKS FROM TARLAND : We have published two leaflets on History Walks from Tarland which complement the “Tarland Walks” brochures developed by the Tarland Development Group (both available at the village noticeboard).
