News: St Kilda and Mingulay log books go online

The last school log books for the abandoned islands of St Kilda and Mingulay have gone online, revealing glimpses of community life on these remote Scottish islands.

Thanks to a partnership between the National Records of Scotland (NRS) and the Tasglann nan Eilean Siar (Hebridean Archives), the two unique books have been conserved and digitised in Edinburgh before being returned to Stornoway. The log books are now available as virtual books, allowing the browser to flip through the pages and zoom in to read individual text from the comfort of their computer. for more click here
