Colonsay and Oronsay Heritage Trust is launching a drive to recruit new supporters to help fund its vital work protecting the islands’ heritage.

Trust convener Dave Binnie is asking people who love the islands to join as associate members, if they live off the island.

The COHT has ambitious plans, as reported in the Corncrake, to create a new heritage centre on land they are trying to buy at Port Mhor.

The form for membership is available at:


Meanwhile St Andrews’ University student Stephanie Kirby is busy helping collate the collection of artefacts and other materials the heritage trust has gathered so far. She took time off from her work to attend the uni leavers ball – but was back bright and cheery on the Sunday night.

A great deal of work has been going into the COHT website – which has a large collection of very interesting photographs – and much more besides.
