Macduff Harbour - In 1966 after a major upgrade at the Harbour, and again in 1983 for the Burgh 200th anniversary, a booklet “Macduff and its Harbour” was published. For this chronological look at the centrepiece of the town the Macduff Heritage Society draws on those and many other sources, looking at the harbour facilities for Macduff from the earliest times, a wide range of photos and some previously unseen video footage from the major work in 1965.
Romantic Scotland - In May 2019 an exciting new Exhibition is coming to Scotland entitled “Romantic Scotland”. Two of the curating team are coming to explain about the Exhibition, to show us some preview pictures. The Exhibition explores how a romantic view of Scotland’s past popularised by writers like Sir Walter Scott and painters like Alexander Nasmyth compares with archival evidence, using objects, paintings, photographs and other treasures. The Talk will be presented by the lead curators: Rebecca Bailey of Historic Environment Scotland and Patricia Allerston of National Galleries of Scotland.
