Tasglann-held archives | Clàran an Tasglann

Tasglann nan Eilean Siar manages the historical records of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (Western Isles Council) and its predecessor bodies.  It also manages a number of archives that have been gifted or deposited with the Comhairle.

Cataloguing work is ongoing, but the collections made accessible through the Tasglann are:

  • School records such as log books, admission records and school board papers
  • Local government records relating to pre-1975 local government 
  • Gifts and deposits of personal papers and business records

Access to these records is made through the Tasglann's searchroom above Stornoway Library or through the network of public libraries and Council offices across the Western Isles.

Access is by appointment only.  Please contact us for more information.
