Kintyre Antiquarians' in recording Kintyre's past history and in recording the natural features of Kintyre's beautiful environment".

Though the present editor of The Society's magazine, Angus Martin, is everconcerned about protecting the copyright in his own and other authors works published in the magazine, many of the early magazine articles, including many by the present magazine editor Angus Martin himself, were put online on 'The Kintyre Mag' website at http://www.kintyremag.co.uk/, between 1997 and 2006, by Campbeltonian Ian Forshaw, the story recorded in his article "Antiquity and Technology" (Kintyre Magazine No 46, Autumn 1999, pages 28/29) and though, 'for personal reasons', Ian Forshaw has added no more material to his website added since the end of February 2006, he has continued to keep 'The Kintyre Mag' website online at http://www.kintyremag.co.uk/ and the valuable archive of articles easily trawled given the contents indexes here. When, in 2006, Argyll and Bute Council decided to house Campbeltown's Public Library in a new leisure complex, turning the former library building into council offices, 'The Society' had to transfer its library and archives to temporary accommodation in Campbeltown's Town Hall and at that point The Society's magazine and other collections then became inaccessible to researchers other than The Society's Office-Bearers - Angus Martin, in his editorial notes to the Spring 2008 No 63 issue of 'The Kintyre Magazine', reports there that "Despite repeated representations by letter and telephone, Argyll and Bute Council has failed to offer us alternative accommodation since our eviction in 2006 from 'The Burnet Building' after almost 79 years there. Our collection, less the books which were deemed surplus to requirements and sold, continues to be piled against a wall of a room in The Town Hall, inaccessible to researchers and vulnerable to deterioration" - All correspondence regarding matters pertaining to 'The Society' should be addressed to Angus Martin, 13 Saddell Street, Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6DN and all enquiries about subscriptions and magazine distribution addressed to Mrs Frances Hood, Craiglussa, Peninver, By Campbeltown, Argyll PA28 6QP who, though many magazine editions are now no longer available, may be able to supply 'back-numbers', some of which may also be available, along with other books of Kintyre interest, from K.

Though some might eschew the idea that 'the present is a product of the past', there are more than as many others who would seek out that past in the pages of the wonderful little magazines produced by our local history groups.

A. I. B. Stewart In the very first, April 1977-published, "Kintyre Magazine", A. I. B. Stewart, President of The Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society, wrote that "In an age when scholarship is at a discount and change is regarded by many as synonymous with improvement, it seems to me that it becomes all the more important to look over our shoulders at the lives and achievements of our ancestors, for only by understanding the past can we prepare for the future". An article in the magazine's first issue, by Hector L. MacKenzie, tells us how, "On 14th June, 1921, the then Macdonald of Largie and Sheriff J. MacMaster Campbell issued a circular letter convening a meeting in The Argyll Arms Hotel, Campbeltown, on 21st June, relative to the proposed formation of a society for the study of the Archaeology, History and Antiquities of Kintyre and the preservation of the older records of the district. The aim of The Kintyre Antiquarian and Natural History Society's twice-yearly magazine was therefore "to give some permanence to the work done by 'The
