A SLATE Islands exhibition called ‘200 years of island community: people, history, change and renewal’ on the isles of Seil, Easdale and Luing goes on display at Seil Hall in Ellenabeich, on October 22 and 23.

The weekend exhibition, organised by the Scottish Slate Islands Heritage Trust based in the Ellenabeich Museum, brings together ‘a blitz of research’ gathered over five months by at least 25 volunteers.
