Friends lend a hand to priceless Argyll archive

A launch event for Friends of the Argyll Papers will be held at Inveraray Castle on Friday September 30

ONE OF the most important collections of historical documents in Scotland is set for a boost as a new group is launched to promote the archive.

The family and estate archive of the Campbell family, earls and dukes of Argyll, has become known as the Argyll Papers.

The family rose to prominence in the 14th century and enjoyed close relations with the Scottish royal family and other noble families. As a result they acquired positions of power and responsibility and grants of land. The family became the major landowner in Argyll, owning the lands of Inveraray, Rosneath, Kintyre, Tiree, Mull, Iona, Morvern, Lismore and Scammadale as well as other parts of Appin, and lands and houses elsewhere, including Castle Campbell (Clackmannanshire), Stirling, Edinburgh and London.
