Curracag Winter Talks Programme

The programme of winter talks organised by Curracag, the Outer Hebrides Natural History Society runs from October to March each year.
Following the success of last years programme we have had to move to a new venue, so please note that we will now be using the Dark Isles Hotel in Liniclate, Benbecula and not Lews Castle College.

Talks are usually held on the second Thursday of each month and begin at 7.30pm.

Curracag members free, non-members £2

    New Publications - OHBR Leaflets

    This year we have produced two new leaflets in the Wildlife of the Outer Hebrides series and an information leaflet on Marine Non-native Invasive Species. They are produced as part of the Natural Hebrides project, supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, to help connect more people with their natural environment.

    Leaflets are available from tourist information offices, libraries, museums and in some cafes and hotels, and can be down-loaded from this page.
