The museum premises, the old parish church of St. Colman, belongs to Tarbat Historic Trust Limited. This is a company, limited by guarantee (No SC163073), and a registered Scottish Charity (No 024422), that was set up to administer and run the centre for the local community and its many visitors. Tarbat Historic Trust has a board of directors, who are responsible for the management of the company and is supported very strongly by a local force of Volunteers.
The board consists of noted academics and local people with a passion for our history:
George McIntyre Trustee/Director
To advance, encourage and promote the history of this very significant archaeological site. To keep alive the interest in Scotland’s past by providing a dynamic, educational and visually appealing visitor centre for locals, and visitors
to the Highlands of Scotland. The centre is home to a collection of unique and ancient artefacts, objects, specimens and related documentation. The story is still evolving as the links are made
to other archaeological sites around Scotland.
You do! That is the centre is funded by public donations and by revenue from paying visitors and proceeds from our shop. We receive a small grant from Highland Council which has been confirmed at £6k for this year.
So without you, members of the local community and the general public, the Museum would have to close!
