This year’s prestigious Angus Macleod memorial lecture, to be given by Kenny Matheson on Lord Leverhulme’s ill-fated plans to transform Lewis and Harris a century ago, is to be broadcast live over the internet.

The lecture will take place at Pairc School, Gravir, South Lochs, Lewis, at 7.30 pm on Thursday 24th October. Admission is free and a warm welcome is extended to everyone who can come along for what is always a wonderful evening. Refreshments will be provided following the lecture.

But, if you can’t be there, it will still be possible to see and hear the event at a number of other venues, including e-Sgoil at 44 Francis Street, Stornoway (contact Mira Byrne at This email address is being protected from spambots.
