List Updated to June 26, 2006

Argyll and Bute Council's Archive Service holds and preserves the official records of not only Argyll and Bute Council, but those which the Council inherited from Strathclyde Regional Council and Argyll and Bute District Council and, committed to providing and promoting access to Argyll's archival heritage, the aim is to provide an informative, efficient and helpful service. The Archive Service also provides accommodation for those derived from private individuals, estates, solicitors, businesses and organisations within the area of Argyll and Bute Council, records that are considered of historic interest and worthy of permanent preservation. These private records are often held on indefinite loan and remain the property of the person or institute depositing them. As there is but limited reader accomodation it is always advisable to telephone before your visit. Closed on Mondays and Public Holidays, the archive is open Tuesday to Friday, from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and 2.00 p.m. till 4.30 p.m. The archive is located at Manse Brae in the town of Lochgilphead, some 25 miles south of Inveraray and Free Car Parking Facilities are available at or near the archive offices.
