We work in partnership with Universities and other bodies on specific projects.

Presently we are involved in the Clan Mackenzie/Seaforth Project with Clan Mackenzie, UHI, and the Royal Regiment of Scotland. This involves researching the history of the Mackenzie’s who came to Lewis in 1610 and shortly afterward established a stronghold in our locality at Loch Seaforth – and thereafter created the Seaforth Regiment.

Clan Mackenzie / Seaforth Project

The project seeks to research, document, and highlight this important period in the area’s history and use the information to create a unique visitor attraction, in an area that is rurally isolated.

Alex Maciver Pipe Tunes

We proudly present this new KHS publication which brings together a selection of 30 pipe tunes by Pipe Major Alex M Macivor, along with some biographical details. The tunes were collected by one of his former pupils, Hector Russell. We are indebted to Hector, and also Alex’s maternal cousin, Rena Macnaughton, and his paternal cousin Christina Macleod for preserving these pipe tunes and assisting with the publication of this booklet. It is now available for purchase in our gift shop.
